Thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive!

Dear Mattie Blog Readers,

It means a great deal to us that you take the time to write to us and to share your thoughts, feelings, and reflections on Mattie's battle and death. Your messages are very meaningful to us and help support us through very challenging times. To you we are forever grateful. As my readers know, I promised to write the blog for a year after Mattie's death, which would mean that I could technically stop writing on September 9, 2010. However, at the moment, I feel like our journey with grief still needs to be processed and fortunately I have a willing support network still committed to reading. Therefore, the blog continues on. If I should find the need to stop writing, I assure you I will give you advanced notice. In the mean time, thank you for reading, thank you for having the courage to share this journey with us, and most importantly thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive.

As Mattie would say, Ooga Booga (meaning, I LOVE YOU)! Vicki and Peter

Tonight's picture was taken in September of 2005. This photo makes me laugh! Mattie was with us at a park by the Potomac River. At the park he saw this huge piece of wood. What inspired him to pick it up and lug it to another location was beyond me. Nonetheless, I captured it in a photo.

It was one conference call after the other today. In between I was working on setting up things for our booth on the National Mall on Sunday. Look who my two helpers were? Sunny has been such a positive addition to our lives, it is my hope that he enjoys a full day on the Mall on Sunday! 
Meanwhile, Peter and I have been working on two foam board cutouts for a month now. These are selfie boards. Which means you take a photo behind it and post it to social media. These boards will be at Curefest (a walk and advocacy event for families dealing with childhood cancer-- people come from all over the Country to attend) on the Mall on Sunday, and it is our hope that it will inspire people to visit our booth, take photos, and learn more about us!
