I haven't been traveling much lately just due to the fact that home is a little harder to leave nowadays. However, business needs to be taken care of so I find myself in southwest Michigan this week. Ugh...not much to see here -- no offense to those with Michigan roots. I definitely can't complain about the weather though. K.C. is sweating out mid-90's while up here they're barely in the 80's. Back at home my usual dependable crew of nannies, friends, neighbors, and family will take good care of my girls. Emma is participating in her first Vacation Bible School this week and she is so proud. Thanks to Jan for setting it up and serving as the chauffeur each day this week. Peighton is probably enjoying the mornings to herself for a change. Big sis can get a little bossy sometimes even though she really means well and just wants to help take care of her little sister.
I'd like to thank Derrick Wilde and Scott Briley of the Crawl for Cancer for inviting me to play in the American Cancer Society Golf Tournament on Monday. The location was at one of K.C.'s finest golf courses - the Nicklaus Golf Club at Lions Gate. It was a great way to spend a Monday and i was honored to be a part of it. It got me even more excited about our tournament in September. We'll do our best to make it a memorable event so that it will be inked on everyone's calendar each year.
Finally, I'd like to ask for a suggestion from anyone that may have some ideas. I'm sure you all remember our good friend Mairtin de Cogain, the Irish actor and musician seen in the movie The Wind That Shakes The Barley. He will be returning from Cork, Ireland in a couple of weeks for a festival tour of the U.S. with his band the Fuchsia Band. For everything that he has done for the Jennifer Ireland Foundation, we would like to provide him and his band the transportation for this short tour. Does anyone know where we can find a decked out tour bus???...or maybe just a dependable passenger van will probably do the trick! While touring the middle of the U.S., I know he will be more than willing to advertise and spread the word about our foundation. It is a win-win for everyone.
