The girls got up this morning and came up stairs to greet us, and to also jump up and down on us - we are so much fun! When asked why they didn't go in and spend the time with Daddy, they just replied that he was asleep still. I think next time we need to "act" like we're asleep and maybe they'll just quietly go back to their room... Nah, they would just decide that we needed to be awake and pounce on us anyway.
After getting the girls to school we came back to the house and took care of a few things, including the return of the loaner van from Ability Center and checking on what steps need to be taken to be sure our blue van isn't out too long. Actually, Terry, from the Ability Center has been staying in touch pretty well, and keeping us updated. We should have Jason's van back by the end of this week. We're happy about that because the Semper Fi van is also going away, and back to the Wounded Warrior Battalion - West, probably on Monday of next week, just as soon as our van arrives.
Also, today, we went to the base, at Balboa, to talk about the Symposium, tomorrow. Looks like everything is in place and that we will need to be on site, tomorrow, at about 07:00. We all go on stage and Linda and I have about 23 pictures (photos) that we will be sharing, as a part of the intro for Jason, as well as helpful in introducing Jason. There are supposed to be a bunch of people there, from all around the country and even the world. Amazingly, I'm not nervous - maybe Linda is nervous enough for both of us.
Stephanie and Crista, from the Gary Sinise Foundation are here, as they are also going to be a part of the symposium. We all went to dinner together and had a great time. They took us to a new restaurant callled the Fat Fish. The food was excellent and the conversation was even better. As it turned out we arrived ahead of the traditional dinner hour and that made it much easier for us to get in, ahead for all the people. Dinner was over and we came home; Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
