Whew! What a weekend!!

Well, Friday was the big walk-a-thon at Emma's school. She managed to just raise enough (that morning, actually) that she reached her goal amount of $50. Thanks to everyone who helped out! Hopefully, the students have raised enough for new playground equipment!
It was pretty hot out, but Emma was dancing along to the music of the D.j. (hopefully we didn't have to raise money for him to come..).
I'm sure all the kids took a good nap that afternoon!

Emma & her class ready to walk!

They all got Ice Pops during the walk to cool them down!

The walk and wag was yesterday. Emma ended up raising $50 for the Humane Society. She won a door prize (an orange tee shirt that says "Cool Chicks Wear Orange"), which was great because they didn't make walk and wag tees in kids sizes, so she gave hers to me.
Harley was a good sport, and amazingly made the whole walk (probably about half a mile?) without having to be put in the stroller or passing out. There was one other pug there.

Evan wore his shirt just for Harley!

Off we go!

Harley was so tired after the walk!!! Good job, Harley!

Yesterday afternoon was another pep assembly for the OSU Cowboys playing Troy. Emma saw her friend again, and actually was building with a few of the cheerleaders. I was a little nervous as I saw her in my mind tumbling down onto the driveway of the student union, but she was safe and came back more proud than ever. She's an official OSU cheerleader now, I guess!

In other news...this is a big month for the Castro kids! Evan will be appearing in his first ad (for Kindermusik, of course!) in Stillwater Living Magazine. You can buy your copy at

Unfortunately, I'm not computer-savvy enough to figure out how to turn an adobe project into a jpg, so I can't post it here :( Boooo.

Emma is in the fall STATE magazine, which goes out to all members of the OSU alumni association. She is also on the OSU website at The magazine has a similar photo, but not cropped - so you can technically say Evan is in that one, too since I have a big ol' belly! :) Not sure if you can buy a copy, but their website is

And the big news for today, is that Evan has turned 2 months old! Yay! He goes in for his 2 month checkup tomorrow, so I'll let you know how big he's grown! He still has brown hair and blue eyes and is really trying to move across the room with Emma & Harley. Enjoy his photo book here:
