Trike A Thon: 2012

The April Service Project at Jackson's school was participating in the St. Jude Children's Hospital Trike a Thon.  Jackson collected donations, and then rode his tricycle this morning in the parking lot at his school.  They also took this opportunity to discuss bicycle safety.  Jackson wanted to ride his trike "Rookie," even though his legs are a bit long for it now. Jackson raised $100 dollars for St. Jude and rode his little heart out this morning with his friends.

On your mark....Get set.....Jackson "may" have yelled "Get 'er Done" when it was time to start.

All the trikes.
I am thankful that Jackson got to help other children this morning.  

While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.

Your blog brings such joy to my heart. Watching your
children grow up has been a real blessing. St. Jude
has a special place in our heart as they treated Tony's
son Bryan when he was 13 for hodgkins cancer. Ten years of follow up care, recovered fully with 4 kids now and we will be forever grateful for his care. Remember
all the sweet things about your children and don't worry about the negative or rude comments people say. God has blessed you greatly and Clare will be off and running soon.

I have looked at this blog twice now, and both times it has brought tears to my eyes. I am so proud of our little Jackman. He is such a sweet, caring young man. I am sure children like Reese Martin and his family appreciate all that is done for St. Jude. Ride, Jackson, ride!!!
