We are in beautiful Beaufort, SC. at our daughter’s. Our oldest son’s family is here too. Our daughter, daughter-in-law, and Eileen ran in the Lt. Dan’s 5K race Saturday morning.DSC_1072

“Ever since playing Lt. Dan — the character in the movie ‘Forrest Gump’ who lost his legs fighting in Vietnam — actor Gary Sinise has devoted time and treasure to helping the nation's military personnel and first responders.” All proceeds are donated to The Independence Fund with a “mission to provide the tools, therapies and guidance to those veterans severely injured in the War on Terror that they otherwise are not receiving.”

Our oldest daughter came in third in her age bracket with a time of 26:05. That’s especially good considering she is just coming off an ankle injury. Eileen came in second in her age group with a time of 36:06 and our daughter-in-law finished strong too.

My son and I watched Lindsay during the race in which I took the opportunity for her to attach herself to me. It worked; all day she wanted me to hold her. That was wonderful!!

We are heading back home later today.
