Mini-Laps 2007

Today was The Little Light House's Mini-Laps 2007. It is their big fall fundraiser they put on each year. So far the school has raised about $139,000, and we have a corporate sponsor who will match up to $150,000. The theme was "Somewhere over the rainbow, dreams really do come true." The kids all dressed up as characters from the Wizard of Oz. Will went as the Cowardly Lion, and his stroller was decorated as an apple tree from the forest where Dorothy first met the lion. Each child made a lap around the yellow brick road. The kids even got to pick prizes in the order of the highest amount raised. Will raised about $2100...not too bad for our first year. Will was 15th highest out of 64 kids. He got this cool Little Tykes tricycle that goes from a rocking toy to a trike with a handle for the parents to push to an independent trike. It also came with a helmet. We all had a really good time. And, the best part is that Poppy flew in and suprised us by arriving at Mini-Laps in time to see Will make his lap.
