Proud Moment!

So proud of my 6 year old right now! In April I posted about the Henry's Hustle event that took place yesterday to raise funds to support Alex's Lemonade Stand, the Foundation of Childhood Cancer, in honor of 4 year old Henry, who lost his battle with cancer in February. Henry was the younger brother of my son's classmate. Part of the event was a 1 mile run, and my son was determined to run in it. I didn't think he would make it through one whole mile, and figured we would see his dad carrying him on his back to the finish line. (He raced with him) Not only did Hayden finish the whole race, but he did in the pouring rain! It began to rain right after we arrived for registration, and continued thru the entire run. I am so proud of his determination & perseverance!!! Here are a few pics of my big guy nearing the finish line :)
