After dining on grasshoppers it was time to get serious about this relay thing and make some miles happen. Most of our visitors had come and gone and it was up to Team Hope Corps to keep it going. I make it sound really epic don't I?
We were making laps when I got a phone call from my Chiropractic assistant Jeannie. She was coming to relief walk for us and she brought her two nieces Jamie and Jessica whom were both youth of ours. It was so great to see them, and great to have a few extra feet on the track.
Eric was getting ready to go stay with Aquaman for the night after the luminaria ceremony, so he coaxed me on the track to do some laps together.
Mom got busy lighting the luminaria. This year the luminaria's were weighed down by a can of food. The Hope Corps collected over 50 cans of food for our luminaria's and Highline Relay gathered 660 cans to send off to the White Center Food bank.
I took pictures of each luminaria we made.... there are SO many to upload. So I just uploaded Mom's. I might have kept it to put in her scrapbook for later... maybe...
I was helping keep Mom warm with the heat off my sunburn as we waited for the luminaria ceremony to begin; and continued to keep her warm as we waited for it to END!
And then we walked... Mom, Brenda and Kathy went to sleep, Eric went home, Tacy woke up, and Alex and Lindsey showed up to give Megan and I some rest for the evening!
