Charlotte has been busy checking off a couple of joys last weekend! Gustavus Adolphus College remembered my dad at a memorial service remembering those who had passed away in the last year, so it was the perfect autumn day to take a road trip down to what has become a family alma mater. The weather could not have been more beautiful and both girls loved seeing my old stomping grounds! This allowed us to check off Joy #69!
On the way home we couldn't help but stop at Minnesota's largest candy store along highway 169. Every kids Heaven, and every parent's nightmare. We escaped with a bag of treats and managed to check off Joy #82 of going to a candy store!
We are five days away from the big race day! Hard to believe after a summer of training that October 9th is here! If you missed out on your first chance to get Seize Your Joy apparel, we have started a second booster with Seize Your Joy "Run for Charlotte" apparel. There are t-shirts, long sleeved shirts, and sweatshirts this time. All proceeds from apparel sales go to the FamilieSCN2a foundation as they work to better understand the SCN2a diagnosis, search for better treatment options, and ultimately a cure for this devastating disease!

We are also raising money as a running team, and it is that time of year where you need your tax write offs! Consider donating if you are able - every dollar helps! Click here to donate to Team Seize Your Joy!
Finally if you could just say a little prayer for Little C that we can stay out of the hospital through the marathon. She has been struggling with uncontrolled seizures and has been intermittently needing oxygen and respiratory support. We have been pushing the limits on what we can do at home, but want to keep her home for obvious reasons. We are focusing on one day at a time, but greatly appreciate the prayers for Charlotte!
