Finley’s preschool had a fundraiser to raise money for new curriculum and iPads for their classrooms.  All kids were invited to take part in the 9th annual Trike-a-thon and silent auction, both of which combine to be the biggest fundraiser of the year for the school.  Finley, via mom and dad, collected flat donations as well as pledge per lap donations leading up the “race day”.  Her class had a 20-minute period to complete as many laps as they could of the roped-off section of the school parking lot.

There was a mix of scooters, big wheels, tricycles, bikes with training wheels, and even one daring boy with no training wheels (and comically a full cage hockey helmet to protect his brain box).  Finley started off fast and quickly settled into a good rhythm that had her finishing 23 laps in 20 minutes.  Finley and her classmates all received a certificate of participation, but high amount fundraisers could get a prize from the “super deluxe treasure chest” (because we need more plastic princess jewelry around the house!), or Toys R Us gift cards.  The class with the highest number of dollars per student raised wins an ice cream party.  Best of all for Finley, after her class completed their laps there were ice-cold popsicles awaiting their parched mouths!

Our little man is growing up and totally stealing our hearts.  He’s a voracious lover of bananas, milk, Spider-man, planes, cars, trucks, balls, dogs, and probably most of all his big sister Finley.  We couldn’t be more pleased with his health and happiness.  The one area that can be difficult with him: getting his annual pictures taken.  However we were fortunate this time around to get some great ones captured thanks to the folks at The Picture People.  Without further ado, here are his 2 year pics… enjoy!
