Wow - What a 4 day weekend!!!!
The Painted Turtle's Fall Family Skeletal Dysplasia Weekend was PHENOMENAL - too good to describe, too fun to explain, too amazing to articulate.
The Paul Newman Painted Turtle benefit in San Francisco was incredible - Shelby had such a complete blast. She was backstage with about 20 other campers from Painted Turtle as well as a few camp counselors. The kids got to meet the celebrities and we have pictures (non-digital, hence can't post them here) of Shelby w/Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Danny Glover, Billy Crystal, Warren Beatty, Annette Benning, Casey Affleck, and more. After the celebrities did their live reading of an Ernest Hemingway short story, the kids came out onto the stage, introduced Bonnie Raitt and they all sang "Put a little love in your heart" - such an unforgettable moment. Our little girl with a zillion special needs was on stage w/some major celebrities singing a song all to help raise money for the most UNBELIEVABLE camp ever.
2 experiences of a lifetime back to back.
Wow. I'm still on an adrenaline high.
Anyways, today was filled with picking up one dog, the other 2 being brought to me, catching up on dishes, laundry, computer things, chores...the list goes on.
