The rest of our weekend was good, the weather here was beautiful. Hannah did have a headache during horseback riding on Saturday, but she says it was because the helmet was hot on her head. By the end of the weekend, all of her symptoms had cleared up and she was feeling better. Now, she either has allergies or a cold. It is the height of hay fever season right now, and I can attest that it is bad.

No problem today getting out for school. She did wake up saying she didn't want to go to school, and it was a slow start to the day, but she had no issues getting out of the car, hopped right out with her friend. Still a bit tentative (crying) at math time her teacher told me today.

Now for those of you who would like to do something for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and like to eat...these two may be for you. Unfortunately, we have neither of these restaurants within a 60 mile radius (so I can't use that as an excuse to eat some good food)!!

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Chili’s Grill & Bar® announced the kick-off of their fifth annual Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer campaign. Now through September 30, Chili’s restaurants around the country and, for the first time, in Puerto Rico, are marking National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by inviting people to get creative and raise funds to help St. Jude find cures and save children with cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.
Guests at participating Chili’s restaurants can contribute to St. Jude in multiple ways:
  • Make a donation to St. Jude and receive a Create-A-Pepper chili pepper coloring sheet designed for display at restaurants during the month.
  • Purchase Create-A-Pepper T-shirts that can be customized with permanent marker.
  • Buy a customized Create-A-Pepper key that can be cut for use at home or the office.
  • Eat at Chili’s on Monday, Sept. 29, when Chili’s will donate 100 percent of profits from participating restaurant sales to St. Jude.
  • Visit and to make an online donation.

Here are a few photos from Tod's visit to Hannah's classroom last week. He also visited Colby's classroom...he made the rounds. Remember when he was so tiny?

THANK YOU SO, SO, SO very much for the donation that you sent me. It means a lot to me, thanks again. I was able to get a few things that Zach needed (clothes, etc) and I was able to pay off one of my hospital bills (the copay). I still have $30 or so left over so I will be saving that so that I'll have money incase an emergency comes up that I need the money.

Thank you guys so so much.
