I will try to break up all of my pregnancy posts, so going back a few weekends to share some photos from the boys’ first race! Add to it, their first race was in historic Lambeau Field.
It was such a fun event and definitely on our list to do again. Ethan loved it so much he asked if we could do it again tomorrow. Unfortunately, it only happens once a year.
The run was a 1K for kids 10 and younger, basically one lap around the field. To top it off the kids were treated to free cookies and ice cream as we took our seats inside the stadium to watch a movie on the jumbotron.
Although I was not able to run along side, I was grateful to just be with them as Aaron pushed me in the wheel chair and the boys ran in front of us.
In moments like this I realize how every single day I take for granted mobility. The ability to walk, run, jump and move without restriction. Without a thought I wake up daily not expecting anything different. For the days when complaining comes to easy I simply need to remember what seems like the small blessings. Yet, the ones that would make a big impact if ever taken away.

I love you guys so much! Still shocked over God’s goodness. I think it’s so beautiful that I also am pregnant while you are! Just praying for healthy happy babies to raise up and give back to God. I was on bed rest the end of my last pregnancy for a few days and thank goodness went into labor. I could not stand it. I was actually surprised at how quickly I went crazy. It’s so much harder than you realize. Just recently remembering St. Maximillian Kolbe on his feast day I finally learned the full story of his life. He truly and literally laid down his life for a friend, which Christ says there is no greater love. The sacrifice you are making for your boys and your husband and precious baby is , I think in a way laying down your life for their sake. Such a great love.
