team.

so fun 

to watch grandie j

and his team

 just at the beginning

of learning skills and strategies

but they all try really hard

accept each other just as they are

and have such a light-hearted team spirit.

“with an enthusiastic team you can achieve almost anything.”

et, longtime sporty friend of mine

signed up to do a quick 5k this morning

prior to our bookclub brunch

and was surprised to learn

that she was somehow stuck doing a 5-miler

due to a ‘volunteer miscommunication error’

and toughed it out, arriving  on time.

please note the difference in her demeanor, expression, and body language

in the photos

before (above)

still running and realizing the mileage

and

after (below)

arriving at brunch and enjoying a breakfast bud light.

here’s to her mighty spirit.“either you run the day or the day runs you.”

while the kinders were playing a farm game

with crops and cash,

some sold

some bought

some traded.

i thought all were farmers

until one came to me 

to say:

“she doesn’t want to be a farmer. she said  she’s a jedi warrior!

that means she’ll be stronger than all of the rest of us!”

swafon.com

i told him that jedi and farmers are both very strong people.

both work hard and refuse to give up.

both try to do things peacefully.

and that

they could work together with no problem.

they would be good for each other.

they would help each other.

even a  jedi has to eat.

even a farmer has to stand up and be brave. 

and they became a very powerful team.
