Walk Now

Yesterday we walked a 5K (ok….it was actually 2.2 miles…but it sounds cooler to say 5K) to raise money for Autism Speaks. Our family raised about $1500! whoop whoop! We went to this event last year. This year our group decided to meet up at the Brooklyn branch of this fundraiser, which made for a slightly smaller and less overwhelming scene for my little guys. It was a nice walk in a wooded park with staff and families from the boys’ school. It was a gorgeous day for it and our boys were troopers walking all that way. :)

Here’s our group!

Other than that, we had a pretty quiet weekend. Hope yours was a good one!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
