An early start and a long morning for small legs. We joined thousands of others this morning in the Run for the Kids supporting the Royal Children's Hospital. It was a perfect day for it and despite a few murmurs of dissent, Ella walked all bar about 250m when I gave her a piggy back and Leila walked some of the 4.5km short course.
We're trying to shift the balance of things around here. We're comfortable in our home, our possessions, the things we do and see, but at times we feel the girls can be little dismissive of the good life that they lead. Things like this, participating in a fun run for the pleasure of it and the feel good factor of knowing they're helping others, they should be more common in our life. Things come a little too easily at times, a treat here a treat there, until you get to the point where you think none of it is really appeciated as what is is, extra, special, a treat. So, we trying to par things back, less uncalled for treats, less television, more activity, more doing for others.
