That’s Tess on the left, finishing another half marathon. She ran this one in Ten Sleep Canyon last year too, but this time I actually got to see her finish! Jaxon, Lacee, and Reagan were there as well, having spent the night at my house to avoid an even earlier morning rush.
Afterwards, I had the kids help me pick more chokecherries while Tess rested. Reagan didn’t remember doing this last year, but she was the most enthusiastic and productive kid! If I could bend a branch down to her, she’d pick 99% of them. Once I told her to leave a few for the birds, she accepted that all those she dropped could be for the birds as well! She’s a thinker!
When we have chokecherry syrup on our pancakes this winter, hopefully, she’ll remember this day!Find me here!
