Livestrong 5K Race

Drew waited all week last week to run his race! He kept telling us he was going to win! Our Livestrong weekend started when we went to the picture studio to see the collection of childhood cancer survivors' pictures. We drove by to find a parking space and there was Drew on the big banner in the window with 3 other survivors!!!! We saw his picture that will eventually be in the Survivorship Clinic and another that was in another window at a restaurant! Drew was so excited...he got to school the next day and all of his teachers had seen him on the news!!!! They did a story on the local news and Drew's picture was in a lot of it!

Water break!

MR and Annalise were also participants in the race!

Drew ran almost the whole first mile and then slowed down for the rest. He had so much fun though! About 50 yards from the end Andy told him to race to the finish line. Survivors get to run through their own finish line so he went to his side of the road and sprinted all the way! He was all by himself with the crowd cheering him on with his horns in the air. (like when the Longhorns run onto the field!) He ran for the crowd as if they'd been waiting the whole hour just for him! I was a bit behind so I didn't get a great shot, but the video is below! Beware-this video clip could make your heart swell so much it feels like you can't breathe!

Man vs. Food Challenge

Drew's favorite new way to eat is pretending almost every meal is a "Man vs. Food Challenge" like on the travel channel! He actually started doing it himself when he was eating lunchables and now he'll ask to do it all the time! He recreated this challenge himself. If you haven't seen the show- the host, Adam, travels to different cities and tries different food challenges from different restaurants. Sometimes it's eating food that's way bigger than his head...hence the cracker-stack!
MR at the dinner table!

This is Drew with the flu!

And MR appears to say "Oh, dear!"

Saturday, October 3, 2009


MR's just chillin out this weekend while big brother fights off the flu!!!!!! Yes, Drew has the flu! Well, maybe I should put it this way....Drew was tested positive for the flu with flu-like symptoms.....but he has yet to actually act like he's sick. We're fighting with taking the medicine, not kissing his brother and resting on the couch. Thursday he started feeling bad and he thought he was going to throw up. But we wanted to praise him cause he'd just eaten chicken and broccoli for dinner. I told him if he didn't throw up then he could have dessert later.....not even 2 seconds later came the quote of the week..."Actually, I'm not sick." hmmm....2 seconds after that his temperature was actually 102!

I'm also posting a video from the game last week!
