Walking

Well, it was Crop Walk Sunday. Once again, the boys participated. This is a cause long promoted by their aunt, who organizes the event every year, and we as a family have participated for over 20 years. (My husband and sister-in-law have been involved even longer, going back 30 years or so.) It benefits world hunger. It's been a few years since Dave or I have walked, but Dave has provided a sound system, entertainment, and all-around support. Obviously he couldn't do that this year. So the boys pitched in and helped set up. Younger Son didn't walk, but manned the "Water Roulette" game.
The point is that 1/2 the people in the world don't have safe drinking water. Half of the cups are "safe" water, half "unsafe". So players choose a cup and see if their water is safe or unsafe (mine was unsafe).

Older Son helped set up and actually walked as well. He managed to raise over $100 dollars!
He was pretty tired afterwards. This was a big weekend for him -- he took the PSAT test Saturday morning as well. He told me it was "easy".

In Knitting News I've finished the second sleeve on my Sports Team II sweater, and started the back. So now I'm thinking, what should I put on the back of this sweater? My options are:
  1. "Here We Go" (Same as Sports Team I)
  2. "Pittsburgh"
  3. "Steelers"

So what does everyone think? Let me know in the comments if you have an opinion.

I think I would have to go with "Steelers" on the back of the sweater. Can't wait to see a photo!
