Polar Plunge 2009

On Saturday, John and the rest of Team RTS - Reaching the Stars took the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Wisconsin. There were 14 members on Team RTS and they raised over $6,300. Thank you to all who made a donation!! It is greatly appreciated!! The temperature was about 20 degrees and everyone (I believe) wants to do it again next year! I guess jumping in freezing water feels good when it is for a good cause!!

Click here for a YouTube video of the jump. The whole team couldn't jump together so they broke up in two groups.

She Knows What She Wants

Ava told me that for Valentine's Day she wants flowers, a card, and chocolates in a heart shaped box AND the chocolates and card put in a Valentine gift bag. John said that he would hate to be dating her!!

Ava on Ice

After going to Disney on Ice, Ava thought she needed to learn how to ice skate like the Disney characters she saw. Since it wasn't too cold last night, I took her to the rink in town. She did really well for her first time. She isn't afraid to fall, so that made it even better for practicing. I took a chair for her to push around, but she decided she wanted to do it by herself. I also put on a pair of skates. I forgot how sore your ankles and feet get until I took them off.
