Bowling for Brain Injury

May 2, 2013

A couple months ago our dear friend Lisa emailed Chad and me about participating in the Brain Injury Association of Indiana’s fundraiser, Bowling for Brain Injury.  We were so glad she stumbled upon this and immediately signed up a team.

We knew we would have no problem raising the suggested $500 for our team, Laney’s Lanes.  However, we were so excited that we actually raised $1,775!  We raised just $100 shy of the #1 team.  Once again, our amazing support network stepped up and showed us just how special our Elena is!  The money we raised supports local outreach, programs and support for the Brain Injury Association of Indiana.  It was all for a great cause.

We had a blast!  I started off on a roll (pun intended!) by bowling a strike on my first turn and was sure to rub it in to my competitive husband!  All in all, it was fun to be with our friends and family supporting a great cause…not to mention brushing up on our bowling skills.

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
