Charlotte and Molly with baby Max

Infrequent Posts=Life is Good.  Life is still going on as normal for the Elskes.  Molly and Charlotte have been sick a couple of days over the last few weeks, but they have been troopers through it all.  Each one has supported the other when she wasn’t feeling well and they have been very patient waiting for the other to get back to her normal, playful self.  Now that they are both feeling better, they are enjoying the snow days Charlotte has been getting and really driving Mommy and Grandma E bonkers just trying to keep up with them!  Charlotte is still loving school and Molly is often very jealous of her older sister and wishes she could go as well.

Amy and I are doing well also.  We are both anxiously waiting for this winter to get over with so the girls can get outside and get more exercise than just running around the house.

We wanted to share a wonderful fundraising event with you.  We’ve mentioned Austin, the 5 yr old boy from Fall River who was diagnosed with ALL when he was 2.  He has spent the last three years battling this disease like a true superhero.  His mother, Kim, has been nominated for Leukemia Lymphoma Society Woman of the Year 2014.  As you will read in Kim’s letter below, LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world that plays a vital role in saving the lives of children like Austin and Charlotte.  Kim was also one of Uncle Dean’s nurses while he was at the UW receiving treatment so she is connected to our family in more ways than one.

Please visit Kim’s fundraising page here and consider making a donation.  If you are uncertain about donating online, you are more than welcome to mail a check to us (by May 1st) and we will get it into the proper account.
