"Walk Your Child to School" Day
Well, I don't know for sure that this has anything to do with "Teapot Festival" week, but on Wednesdays of that week each year, the kids' school holds a "Walk Your Child to School" Day. Today was the day. The walk starts out at City Hall where you get a ticket for a drawing, and ends up at their school where you drop off your ticket and hope for the $50 Savings Bond. So far, we haven't won it - this year was no different. :( The City Hall is just down the street from us - the OPPOSITE direction from the school - so we actually do a walk and a half, I guess. We had planned to leave the house around 7:15 in order to make it in plenty of time. Well, at 7:05, it was raining!! We gathered the umbrellas and decided to go anyway. Luckily, about 5 minutes later, the sun came out, and we were on our way. We took the umbrellas with us just in case - you know how it goes.....if we hadn't have had them, it would have poured on us!!! It was lots of fun, and of course, a great photo op!!!!
My name is Stephanie Finton. I am the wife of Mark Finton, and mom to Parker and Kinlee. I have entitled our blog "Lovin' Every Minute of It" because that is exactly what we are doing. There are so many things in our lives that tend to distract us, and we are striving every day to make the most of the opportunities and time that God has given us. It is our goal to live as God wants us to, raise our family to do so, and touch as many lives along the way as we can. Please join us in our journey as we share our lives with you.
