Another Over-Night With Addy

Last weekend Jeremy and Emily wanted to tackle some major cleaning at their house so we took Addy for an over-night visit. She us such a sweetie and we always have so much fun when she visits. Besides playing in the house Jim took her outside for a ride on the tobaggan. She's really beginning to talk and she seems to understand everything you say to her.

Chris Spends A Day At Independance

This past week the boys were on Spring Break from school and Chris had a chance to spend the day with his dad working at Independance. They were checking fire hydrants that day . It looks like a cold day to be playing in the water.

Last week Josh was in the Spring Concert at his school. He's gotten to be quite the trumpet player. I hope soneday he has a concert when we are going to be there. I would love to go listen to them.

Jim's "Fight For Air" Tower Climb

Fight For Air Climb
Today, 7 members of the Independence Fire Department Ohio participated in the American Lung Association's Climb for Air, in Cleveland. We climbed 42 floors in full turnout gear with air packs. It was quite a challenge. Personally, I was als.o climbing for Cathy's Dad who passed away almost 10 years ago from lung cancer.

Many thanks to the friends who donated to our team and us individually,. We were able to raise a total of $2780. Very impressive for a small team!

Also thanks to Chris who helped us out greatly by watching our stuff while we raced, and took many of the photos that I have attached. — with Chris Wheeler and 3 others at Terminal Tower Observation Deck!!
