CAF Grant

I don't know if anyone remembers the letter of recommendation I sent in last October for Mike to be chosen for a grant where he'd be able to get a hand cycle...but if you do...you'll know why we're so excited...

OK everyone...drum roll please...."budum budum budum chow"...that was the drum roll!

Mike was chosen for the CAF (challenged athletes Foundation) grant! He's getting a hand cycle! And a really nice one at that! Now we just have to decide on the color hmm....I love decisions like that! I don't know who's more excited...Mike or me...OK...Mike, but I'm a close second...then Brody! Bike trips here we come!

I'm so grateful for people who put together programs like CAF so families like us can benefit! Thank you CAF!

Pick a super fun color! I like orange (not that you couldn't have guessed that!) and red and blue and yellow and green and black and brown!
