As for the run - I am TOTALLY out of shape. It is killing me not to get to the gym. Wii Fit is fun but it is not cutting it. Anyway, last year a couple of Kenyon's family members participated in the Rex Lee Run in Provo. Rex Lee was president of BYU when I entered as a freshman. He died of cancer. There is a run every year in Provo to support cancer research at BYU. I thought it was so cool and touching that they would run with Kenyon in mind (and others that they know fighting cancer). I told myself last year that I would FOR SURE do that run. Yeah well, I kind of thought I would be prepared. I did a little search today and realized that the Rex Lee Run 5K/10K is NEXT WEEKEND. Shoot. That doesn't leave much prep time. But, I think I should do it anyway. A 5K - Anyone can do that, right? I might (quite likely) have to walk some of it (all of it) but that is ok. Anyone want to join me?
Today my sister Jane and I took the kids to the Draper Temple Open House. What a gorgeous temple! The kids were particularly interested in the crystals (or diamonds as they called them) on the chandeliers. I loved the Spirit and the furniture, fabric and Minerva Teichert paintings.
This is one of my favorites from the temple. It is not one that I was familiar with. It looked so beautiful. I WANT IT!
I really missed having Kenyon at the temple with us. I was sure that I was safe picking March 6th. I never would have thought he would be in the hospital. Hopefully, by June he will be able to join us at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. It is such a cool thing that my kids have 2 opportunities to tour the temple.
Speaking of Kenyon - he is trying a new med and a small decrease in steroids. We'll see if that does that trick.
