Here it is the first of September. Where has the summer gone? I can't believe it's time for our kids to head back to school.
I already took my oldest daughter to Gonzaga University last weekend. She's my first to head away to college and it was even more emotional
than I expected. I miss her so much, it hurts.

She always participated with my other three children and my husband and me in the Portland Race For The Cure. This would have been our sixth year racing as a family.
We are still racing... and Meg, well, she's "Sleeping in for the Cure". Yes, you really can do that this year. You get a shirt and everything.

I am even more grateful to have the "Komen Portland Race For the Cure" in my life this year.
It gives me something extra to keep me busy and to look forward to, so I don't focus quite so much on not having my Meg home with me anymore.

I hope you all will join me in this year's Race on Sunday, September 17th. I'll be there with my family (Meg will be "sleeping in for the cure") and my KGW team, "Laural's Hardy Racers". We've almost raised 2,000 dollars so far for the Komen Foundation.
Please join us, and please add your comments below on why you Race for The Cure.

See you on Sunday, September 17th!!!
