Coming Soon ...

to a billboard near you ... Georgia! Promoting the incredible place that is Dell Children's Medical Center! Our girl was very honored to be asked to pose for a billboard as part of a new ad campaign, so she went for her very professional photo shoot on Saturday and had a blast. She's the only actual patient of the four kids featured, but the doctors are all doctors at DCMC, and everyone's wearing ... Groucho glasses! We're not sure when the billboards will be up or where they'll be, but we'll post a picture as soon as we see hers. Be on the lookout if you're in the Austin area around mid-July!

Tuesday night, we were treated to a sneak preview of "The Karate Kid," courtesy of the Starlight Children's Foundation. Even though we're not big martial arts fans, we all enjoyed the movie, most (or all?) of which was shot in China, so the scenery was beautiful. And from now until June 20th, if you buy your tickets on Fandango, $1 from each ticket will go to help Starlight provide more fun free events for seriously ill children and their families, so go see it!

Finally, this week, Georgia will be attending Claymation Camp, courtesy of the amazing Austin Film Society. She is beyond excited, especially since she missed out on completing her class claymation project at school this spring. Thankfully, the stars aligned just so, and this happens to be a great week for her to have some fun for a few hours each morning. So now Mommy just has to actually let her go ... : )

  5. Hi Georgia and everyone else too! Hope you all are enjoying the summer and staying cool. I can't wait to see you on the billboard! How exciting. Here is something sort of funny-- recently Jeff told me a series of "Chuck Norris" jokes and I realized that a while back you told me what I now know to be a joke about how Chuck Norris ordered a big mac at burger king. Well, I told quite a few people about that but as an interesting true fact--not a joke! Anyway, hope to see you all soon!

  7. Georgia, I'd like to see a claymation of the Karate Kid. Think you could pull this one off after camp?

    We're cheering for you here in Provo, Utah!

    Love,
