The Iditarod is starting this Saturday and this family is super excited. We have gotten the extended family together to each pick Mushers (racers) to cheer on throughout the race and bought the GPS feature on the Iditarod website so we can follow their progress. Z and I also had a great time creating an interactive display board in our Dining Room this past weekend.
Our display has a map of the checkpoints with a little husky that we can move from checkpoint to checkpoint as the leaders move.
We also made an interactive leader board so we can follow along with the family picks. Each family member has a dog with their name on it, their photo (for Lil'C) and their Musher's Name and bib number. These dogs will move up and down depending on where the Musher is in the race (1st place, 2nd place etc.)
I plan to send out daily emails with the standings to keep the family in the loop. The top 3 finishers will get small prizes. We are so excited to watch this amazing and challenging race. It starts on Saturday so mark your calendars and follow in on the fun!
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
