Weekend Update: Kicking Juvenile Diabetes to the curb

This was the weekend of the big JDRF walk in Greenville, North Carolina.  Just in case you need a geography lesson, NC is pretty damn far away from PA!  Wow....that trip sucks but I'm always glad to get there and sorry to drive home.

Above is my sister and my nephew before the walk.  Our team raised close to $7,000!!!  We had a great turn out and everyone who attended had a wonderful time.

Here is my sister and I in the midst of the walk.  It was 2.5 miles and it was beautiful!  Close to 80 degrees!  We couldn't have asked for a better day.

Little G got to hang out with a stormtropper and was VERY excited.

Here are my girls and Big C with some other friends of ours.  On Friday night we went to a talent show at the high school my sister teaches at; she was one of the judges.  The kids had so much fun.  My sister works at a predominately black high school and I am very proud to say that our kids didn't seemed to notice that we were some of the only white people there.

It was a fantastic show with impressive dancing as well as singing.  By the time it was over, I was glad my sister was judging and not me!

How was your weekend??

So, I am obviously catching up on your blog but this is what I saw on the news lol! I didn't realize your sister taught at one of the high schools! Is it DH Conley or JH Rose? If so, I went to both of those!

I am glad y'all had a good time and congrats at raising so much! I hope you were able to get some rest in there!
