Smoothie Time

Izzy has been doing so well with her sentences that strangers are starting to comment on it. I guess it doesn't help that she is so tiny. Everyone thinks she is still 1 and then she pops out with a full sentence like, "Mommy, can I please have a smoothie?" I seriously thought the girl's eyes at the smoothie shop would pop out of her head. She was surprised to say the least.

Great Strides 2010

So I will post pictures after I steal them from some of my friends pages. I unfortunately left my camera at home!

The walk was a great success this year. To date, we have raised $1800 but are still attempting to raise more. So if you haven't had a chance to donate, you still can yet. If you have donated, THANK YOU! But feel free to give more! CF is an orphan diease, which means that it doesn't receive funding from the government towards research also less than 30,000 people in the United States have CF, so there isn't a lot of financial motivation for large companies to develop treatments or a cure. Every little bit helps give Izzy more tomorrows!

We are walking in 2 weeks in Jefferson City as well.

The walk was a little cold and the sky a little overcast but we walked the whole 2 miles this year. Izzy rode most of the time in her wagon with one of her friends.

In attendance this year were several of her birth month buddies from one of my online chat groups. Izzy got to play with Harli, Hadley and Sloan all day Saturday! We had red balloons for Conner. There were several other teams wearing red for Conner.

Overall, it was a great day! I hope everyone else had a great weekend! I'll post pictures soon!
