Reading and Personal Event Today

I'm reading The Iron Witch, Eve and 3 other books right now... Kind of ADD I know but I accidentally started them all now I'm going back and forth. Has anyone else ever done that? I would of had a review today but my daughter's Synchronized Ice Skating Team, the National Blades, had a Benefit Skate so we were at the ice rink ALL day. It was awesome, and especially since Emily took one skate around the ice with the help of her old coach. 

Emily was part of the Intermediate team and a wonderful skater, but was born with a heart defect. The fact that she skated at all was a miracle. Last year at 14, she underwent a heart valve surgery and suffered a paralyzing stroke on the table. 

Her therapy has helped her regain some use on her left side and some speech, but she has a long way to go. This skate was to help raise funds for her therapy as insurance only covers so much.

If you want to learn more about the team or contact the coaches to donate, visit http://www.nationalblades.org/

I hope you are all well, and if you have kids please give them an extra big hug tonight. My heart is still breaking over the CT shooting. Be well my friends and see you tomorrow.
