Easter Seals zoo walk

Sunday August 7th was a fun day! We got up early to be at the zoo by 7:30 in the morning. We received our tags and t-shirts and walked to the pavilion inside the zoo.

As you can see, we saw lots of animals, took some fun selfies and ate well at Recipies Restaurant in Troy after the walk. I had the Very Berry French toast croissant (powdered sugar covering it) and Gabby has the short stack of strawberry pancakes!

Yes, I was the family spokesperson again. I’m getting better at it. I’m very thankful for my radio training at Pepperdine University so I am used to talking into a microphone & being able to keep my thoughts straight. I am thankful to Norb Promo, Craig Sharum and Brent Wirth at Easter Seals for giving us the chance to do all of this this year. I keep hoping we have not disappointed in our representation of Easter Seals. We have just been enjoying the ride and trying to show our appreciation for being chosen.

Our next big Easter Seals outing is to the Detroit Tigers game on Monday, September 12. All 4 of us get to go on the field and Duncan gets to throw out the first pitch! Lord, You are so GOOD to us!

Who am I, oh sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? … Is this your usual way of dealing with man, oh sovereign Lord?

I’m asking for donations

Yes, I’m blatantly asking for anyone reading this to please donate to our Walk With Me team for Easter Seals.

The one mile zoo walk is August 7 at the Detroit Zoo. We would love to have local, or even semi-local, friends sign up to walk with us. You can register by clicking on the ‘Join’ button on our team page.

Those of my friends scattered around the globe can donate via the ‘Donate’ button on our team page.

Easter Seals is a wonderful organization for helping people of all ages. The money they raise goes to helping people, not to big salaries or advertising.

So, please join us to walk! Please donate!

Thank you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

We are Easter Seals Ambassadors!

imageYes, the kids are the co-ambassadors for Easter Seals Michigan! We were called in late December, asking us if we would let the kids be their representatives for 2016. Of course I said yes! The guys came over to talk with us about it right at New Years time. As you can see by the SNOW ON THE GROUND IN OUR PICTURE, our professional photo session was in February. 😳😳

Our activities as ambassadors so far, have included the kids each getting to choose raffle winners for cars & cash, speaking at the Easter Seals Michigan annual meeting and doing a zoo walk in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We will be at the Detroit Zoo walk on August 7! PLEASE join us, or donate to our team if you live too far away to join. Our team page for joining us and donating


We went to Maine to meet Gabby’s running buddy, Sarah. Gabby was in 7th Heaven! I was too, getting to meet my email pen pal, Barb. That’s Sarah’s mom. We also met all the rest of their family & a few friends. The kids said it was better than Disney!

Since returning from Maine, the kids have been bored! (3 days…) It’s gonna be a long summer… At least I have 2 camps scheduled in there! Yay, me!
