Mr. KTs bike project

Wow! Two posts in one day!

If you all have 4 minutes to watch the following video, please, please do. My husband (who you may already know is the youth director of a church) spearheaded this mission trip for the high school kids. This was the 3rd Mission Trip of the summer and it was a project he has been working on for almost a year now.

Last summer, he took a large group to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. They did some work and learned a whole lot about the culture. The kids and the adults on the trip gained a new perspective and lots of respect for a group of people who are different than they are. All year long he has been collecting, storing, repairing and refurbishing used bicycles. This is such a cool thing that he did and I am so proud of him! Take a few minutes out of your day and watch the video if you can. The video was put together by a guy at our church who works for Nebraska Public Television so it is a well done clip. The video can't be embedded but click here to go to the link. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Omaha is one of my favorite places and I'd love to come race in that part of the country sometime.

Good effort last weekend and good luck at the Oly this weekend!
