Summer is fast approaching and we’re looking forward to it. Our son’s first year at school has gone quickly and we’re excited to be spending as much time as possible outside with him. I can’t wait to see what mischief we’ll get up to together!
But I’m also dreading July. We miscarried last year and Beanie’s due date would be the middle of the month. The closer it gets, the more I think about what could have been. We can’t change that it happened. Life has its ups and downs and miscarriage sucks (to put it politely!)
Thinking something along the lines of ‘Keeping the body busy to still the mind’, we have set ourselves a family challenge. Our aim is to bag 20+ munros (a mountain over 3000ft) over 4 weeks. It’s going to be a huge challenge for us! Mentally, physically and emotionally. Beanie will be there with us in our thoughts every day.
We’d also like to raise a bit of money for Tommy’s at the same time as getting our hefty dose of adventure in!
Please sponsor our challenge and help fund research into the causes and prevention of pregnancy complications that lead to miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth at our fundraising page here;
Thank you for your support, it means a lot!
Stacey, Keith and our adventurous son (who will most probably be fuelled by jellybeans for the majority of the summer!)
