I hate to neglect the "blog faithful"! We have kept so busy lately that I have failed to post. Thankfully we have so many great stories available in our little blog network that you all can sit down with a cup of coffee and be inspired by so many others. I check them all faithfully and often see familiar names continuing to spread love and support to the many deserving cancer patients out there.
As for the Ireland family, we are just plugging away at life. The girls are looking like little beach bums with their tans. With Jan off for the summer, they get to spend quite a bit of time with Nana. Stephanie continues to do a great job and maintains a week full of activities for them. Due to my flexible schedule, I have the pleasure of spending quite a bit of time around the house. A morning with the girls beats any morning in the office!
I want to mention a couple of things regarding the Jennifer Ireland Foundation. First off, we are working diligently on a golf tournament to be held in late September. We'll have the date solidified by early next week, so get your clubs polished and your foresomes together. If you haven't had a chance to look, the Jennifer Ireland Foundation magnets are available on the foundation site. Just click on the link on the right side of this page to jump on over. The magnets turned out great and hopefully will be a great tool in visually spreading the news about our foundation. Those that ordered Crawl for Cancer t-shirts can expect them to be in the mail by the end of the week. Obviously your location plays a role in their ETA, but they'll be there soon!
Last night, the J.I.F. board of directors had a great meeting. We are really excited about our future and the incredible number of lives we can touch. It is almost as if the blog readership serves as a member of our board. Your presence and support is always felt and I want to sincerely thank you for that.
