Pictures, Pizza, and Pride

We're so thankful our older girls are such hard workers and have great employment this summer. Altho at times, it means a little juggling of activities, cars, and other resources. Father's Day was one of those juggling times. The kids gave Robin his gifts on Saturday night. Kaylin even threw in some Pinterest inspiration and put together a collage in a frame. Really sweet.

On Sunday Robin asked for pizza for his lunch so Peter and Gaƫlle worked with me to put the meal together.

And Robin lounged around. 

On Sunday there was a 3 Km Run for 3 Fathers. It was hosted in Moncton for the 3 RCMP officers who were killed. However, anybody could sign up and do a virtual run. So, 5 of us signed up and we met Emily and Penny in Halifax and ran together. 

The run was an incredible success. They literally planned it in just a few days and Moncton had a couple of thousand runners. The final numbers aren't in but they are saying that they raised around $120,000. Amazing. All of the money will go to the 3 families. We are still hurting from the events of the past few weeks, but so proud to be able to help out in some small way.
