We're off for the weekend. We're heading to the Detroit area to participate in a Cancer walk for our cousin's son, Ethan. (He was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma just a few days before his second birthday.) It will be nice to see the family and I always draw inspiration from Ethan's parents who have shown such strength throughout the past 16 months. We'll get back on Sunday and then I'm off to Austin on Monday. I'll return late Thursday evening and then I'll leave for Philadelphia early Saturday. It will be tough being away from the boys and I feel especially bad because the baseball season is wrapping up and Nicklas starts his tournament games. I hate to miss them but duty calls and that's life, I suppose.
