Miss Ohio week is becoming a reality. Today was the official forum for all of the Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen contestants; we drew numbers and sorted through details. It was neat to see all of us together! I think we're going to have a fun week. I was also glad to catch up with the Miss contestants I've grown to love so much. What a great group of girls.
As someone who has never stayed awake 24 hours, I can't imagine what it would have been like to stand 36 hours at DM (Dance Marathon). DM was held as a fundraiser for CMN in which all participants had to be dancing or at least standing for 36 hours. To take their minds off their sore feet, I was asked to preform. That night I danced for my sister and all the Miracle kids that I was blessed to meet. Thank you to everyone involved in DM! I am amazed and grateful to everyone who has donated over a day of their time to tough it out in this incredible fund raiser. It's going to feel great to go to bed!
