2nd Grade Social Media

UPDATE 10/31/2010: Ben walked 26 laps (13 miles) today barley pausing for a restroom break and to eat. I’m proud of his commitment and determination. (The multiple snow cone coupons may have helped too)

Ben gets out the word on his fundraising effort for the upcoming walkathon. He gets very anxious about walking door to door and talking with neighbors. He’s at home in front of a computer making a video for family and friends.

Welcome Home

A big "Welcome Home" to Jon (my sister’s husband) who just returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq.  We are all relieved he is home safe and sound.  This pass through he was based on an aircraft carrier flying F-18’s just off the coast of Iraq.
