We held our team captain kickoff for the 2nd Annual Swim for Melissa today. It was great! We had so many kids and their parents show up.
In fact, we have TRIPLED our number of swimmers from last year already! How great is that? I think it takes a year for any event to really catch on. This year we haven't had any trouble at all finding kids to swim in the event. I think people have realized all the good that Melissa's Fund is doing and they want to be a part of it. That makes me so proud. I can't wait to see how much we raise for Melissa's Fund at this year's event! To learn more about Swim for Melissa, click here.
On an unrelated note, Ann Catherine is having a rough time. Her 2-year-old molars are coming in and she has felt pretty crummy the last couple of days. Nothing major - just pretty whiny at night. Tonight in the middle of dinner, she just started crying so hard. She got so upset that I had to pick her up and go sit on the couch with her. She felt so bad. So I gave her an early bath and a dose of Motrin before bedtime. Hopefully, she'll feel better.
Lily's first tooth came in earlier this week! It's adorable. She's been having some pains from time to time, too. She's putting everything in her mouth! Thank goodness for Motrin! Between the two of my girls, we're certainly using it these days!
