Washington Trip / Epilepsy Stuff

I've been promising to post pictures from our Washington Trip to the National Epilepsy Walk and I finally have them loaded. I don't know where the time goes. This week sort of disappeared on me. 
Before I share a little about our trip though, I want you to check out these two links on epilepsy stuff. 

The first link is a video of Greg Grunberg
 on CNN talking about Epilepsy Awareness and his new website TalkAboutIt.Org. Be sure to check out the Talk About It site too. It's very cool! 

The next link is to the cover of Newsweek for April 20. It's an awesome story on epilepsy.

There is lots of great information in all these links! By the way, Spencer is 4 weeks seizure free again. Hallelujah! Please continue to pray for no seizures as we are about to go to Disney World for Spring Break. 

Here are some of the pics from Washington.
Me and Spencer on Capitol  Hill
Spencer as The President of the United States :-)

We had a great time at Kids Speak Up and at the Walk. We raised over $500 for the Epilepsy Foundation. I think over 9,000 people attended the walk this year despite the rain. Spencer is already asking if we can go back next year. 

Sweet Blessings,
