Breast Cancer Walk
It took the walkers longer to get there than we thought it would, so we spent some time sitting around talking. Finally, the few people who were running began passing us. Mrs. Deweese, our teacher, was pretty close to the front. She was walking with some of her family. She looked so shocked to see all of us there. She even stopped walking for a bit and put her head in her hands. We should her the wall, and we took pictures with her in front of it. It was really emotional. She started crying, and I was really close to tears. She gave each one of us a big hug and talked to us a little while before continuing walking.
Haley and I had to wait for my mom to come pick us up, so we were some of the last to leave. There were two teachers there other than Mrs. Deweese, and they were the last ones to leave other than Haley and me. One of the teachers actually stayed with us until my mom showed up.
After we got picked up, my mom wanted to go buy Lowes quickly to buy a new stove. (This makes me really happy because our current stove is crap. Most of the burners don't work, and the oven bakes things really unevenly.) Haley and I spent the whole time looking at cook books and a dog training book. There was this seriously cool cupcake book there that had absolutely adorable cupcakes. I definitely would have bought it if I thought I could make something even remotely similar to those pictures.
Overall, I didn't really do much today, but it was a really nice day. I had a lot of fun.
