Tonight's picture was taken in June of 2007, on Father's day. We took Peter for a Duck Tour (a land and water tour) to celebrate the day. It was a beautiful day and Mattie loved watch our tour bus get transformed into a boat!

I can't believe tomorrow is Sunday and there is no more Walk planning to do. The only thing left is set up and host it. Amazing how fast this last month has gone.
My parents tried to help divert my attention today since I have been quite wound up with planning. We all went shopping together, walked around, and had lunch. By the time I returned home, Peter had picked up Karen (my lifetime friend) from the train station. Karen and my dad did walk tasks with Peter, and my mom and I remained back at home.
The interesting part about this evening, is as I walking onto our deck, I spotted a bat flying low and over my head. Typically that would have freaked me out, but I took that as a sign instead. I told Peter that I just experienced a "Mattie Fly Over."
As I try to unwind for the night, I want to THANK all of our supporters and volunteers for making this Walk possible. We are very grateful and appreciative of your continued support and faith in us. Wish us luck tomorrow!
