We just got back from Washington, D.C. Literally like an hour ago. I can't even begin to tell you what an unbelievable trip this was! What an unbelievable week, actually, starting last Friday evening in Sioux Falls.

There are about a ga-zillion things I want to write about, but need to unpack and get two little princesses to bed right now. The whole story is coming soon though! :-)

For now, we just want to thank SO INCREDIBLY MUCH the entire CMN staff at Sanford, the national staff and the CMN Champions staff, along with Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and everyone involved in putting all of this together. I can't even begin to consider the amount of work that went into this amazing week.

We feel ridiculously blessed to have been able to experience all the once-in-a-lifetime events of the past week.

Again, thank you to everyone, and I'll post more soon.

Good night!

4 Days to Go!

Oh my gosh does time fly! Suddenly we have 4 days before we leave for Washington! I guess I better pull out the suitcases!

Did you have a chance to watch the Healthbeat special on KELO last night? They did a special about CMN's 25 years of helping kids in South Dakota. Olivia and Meredith were featured on the program. If you missed it, you can watch the whole program at this link:

Although our flight to Washington D.C. doesn't leave until Sunday morning, we'll be heading to Sioux Falls Friday night. On Saturday morning we get to go to Wal-Mart and go on a $500 shopping spree to get last minute items for our trip! Then (weather permitting) we'll go to Wild Water West.

Thanks so much to the entire CMN staff: Amy, Julie, Kim, Janon to name a few - everyone has been so incredible to us and we're so very lucky to be able to do all of this!

Sunday morning a limo is taking us to Sanford Children's so we can participate in the telethon for about an hour before heading to the airport. The girls are so very excited about that limo ride!

I can't wait to share photos and details of our trip when we get back!

Talk to you soon!
