Gifted in Running!

It is happening... I have found an area that my daughter is gifted in... long distance running!   She is good at it and she enjoys it.... I am not much of a fan of running so I am thrilled she loves it.   I am going to run with her and doing it with maybe i will become a bigger fan of it! 

It all started about 3 years ago when we walked up Rib Mountain in Wausau Wisconsin.   As we headed back she started running and never stopped! 

Then a year ago she ran in her school's walkathon and was the top female in her grade level!   

This year she set a goal to run the entire time and she did it!   She ran 24 laps which we think is roughly 3 miles in under 30 minutes!   She again was the top female runner and she tied with the boy in her grade!  

I know... I am bragging about my daughter but I do think it is so important for us parents to find and help mold our children in the area's that God has given them strengths! 

So do I start finding more running activities, do I sign her up for races, do I wait for her to ask to go running?   

This week she went running up some super steep hills and did great... hills I had no interest in even trying so thankfully my husband and our intern took her running on this camping trip!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
