Some of you may remember that my brother does the Super Plunge to benefit Special Olympics each January.  What a lot of people don’t realize is that it requires fundraising for months beforehand!  Mike works so hard to make that happen, and a couple weeks ago, I got to witness a special event to that end.

Kickin’ it with Cops was a great day where folks from Tamashii Black Belt Academy got together to crank out 1000 kicks to raise money for the plunge.  People were sponsored for the event, and together everyone raised over $5000 to help the cause!  The weather was great, and it was such a fun day to be outside.  The Lee’s Summit Police were there to show their support (several on Mike’s super plunge team are police officers), and the fire station even brought out a truck, too!  People of all ages showed up to be a part of the fun day.

Tamashii Karate just moved to a new location, and they’re working on a new website to boot!  They’ve got a great thing going on over there, so if you’re in the Kansas City area (Lee’s Summit, really) and looking for some martial arts training, you should check it out.

Taking photos of these precious little girls was like a window of what my life would be like with girls instead of boys… and it was oh so sweet!  Willa was simply delightful, wanting to help and show me around as much as she could.  Addie was full of adorable grins!  And together, well, they were unstoppable.

It’s such a gift to have a mom to share these milestones, celebrations, and struggles with– and I’m so thankful for Shelly sharing her life with me!  Your girls are just precious.

This sweet, precious little girl turns one today, and I love her so much!  Her parents are amazing friends, and Wendy is an incredibly lucky kid to have such amazing people pouring into her and teaching her about life every day.

I’m so thankful I got to spend some awesome quality time with Wendy this weekend!  We had a delightful little tea party.  Happy birthday, little one!

Just before we left North Carolina, I was delighted to sneak in some senior photos of Luke.  He went with Mike to Russia earlier this year, and man, is this guy awesome.  By now, he’s already gearing up for senior year– I hope it’s amazing, Luke!  We miss you!!
