Race for the Cure

My friend Katy and I have signed up to do the 5k for the breast cancer run/walk! That's 3.11 miles ;) It's in Newport Beach on Sunday, September 28th! The race we're doing starts at 9:45 and you can sign up to race or donate funds to help support the cause! You're also allowed to bring a stroller along! The kids will be joining me!

Breast cancer is a cause that's very dear to my heart. My next door neighbor and I were very close. She gave me lots of motherly advice, spent lots of time with me when I was a child, and encouraged me in so many ways. I was the Junior bridesmaid in her wedding :) She passed away from breast cancer at 38 when I was 11 years old. Her name was Abbe, who we named our daughter after :)

I'm still here :)

I do apologize for not blogging more :( I haven't had a lot to write about other than that we're still here! The kids are getting big, Christian's 10 months and has 8 TEETH and Abby's 2 1/2 and very talkative! Robby's working hard still for our family. Being self employed, he's busy being our family provider. As for me, I've gotten involved in helping with the Care ministry at church this Summer and love being able to serve our church family! We're gearing up for the Thrive marriage ministry to start again this Fall! Our small group we lead is already full with 10 couples and 25 children (3 of those haven't arrived just yet!). Robby's still loving serving whenever he can on the worship team. We're looking forward to men and women's Bible study starting up next week too! We both are attending church retreats this Fall too!

We still have Disneyland passes through March and, recently joined the YMCA! I've loved taking the water aerobics course! (I've gone 4 times in 6 days!)! It's been 3 1/2 years since I stepped foot in a "GYM". Robby's swimming laps too on his lunch breaks!

We are still praying fervently for Robby's Dad who has been battling stage 4 cancer since diagnosed in May. The Doctors are still trying to find the right medication to treat all his symptoms. Please remember to keep the Millsap family in your prayers.

Also, Robby and I have joined and update that often with what we're up to! If you join, let us know! :)
