Tori: I treated my in-laws and took them out to dinner tonight.

Lesli: Motivated my mom and dad to run 8 miles with me on Labor Day!

Kaylin: We always hand wash our dishes instead of using a dishwasher, so every day this week before my mom gets home from work, I’ve made the point to make sure to wash all the dirty dishes so she doesn’t have to do more later after dinner. :)

Kristen S: The healthy help I’ve been doing is helping my mom out extra! She just got surgery, so anything I can do to help her is what I’ve been doing. I do extra laundry and chores and give my sister rides. (:

So many submissions this week! I love it!
