Penny had a very busy day today, but she took a midday break to play with a friend and make puppets from recycled paper bags. In honor of Penny's latest Jump Rope for Heart! donor, grandma Sharon, Penny dedicates this cute puppet: This week, Penny and I will explore how the heart works and talk about different exercises to keep her healthy and strong. After a day like today, during which she really gave her all at gymnastics, I think she's starting to understand what the heart does. The more Penny helps to raise, the more the American Heart Association will be able to help children afflicted with heart conditions. If you haven't already, please consider a small donation through Penny's fundraising page ! For each donation of $10 or more, Penny and I will create a piece of art and post it on this blog.
