Spring Green

Spring Break has come and gone, and we had a great time! Once Georgia wrapped up the SAT, we were ready to head to my grandmother's for a few days - with Clemmy in tow, of course. We spent time with family and visited the San Jacinto Monument and Space Center Houston at NASA. You know the Peachy Keens love us some SPACE, right? So Georgia and Ivy both were very excited to go, and with so much to see, we'll definitely be going back soon. Highly recommended if you're in the area!

Lunch with Cousin Nelson in Galveston, where he's in his first year of medical school - 
we're so proud of him!

The San Jacinto Monument is taller than the Washington Monument.
Of course, it is!

New favorite t-shirt.

Mission Control as it looked on July 20, 1969.

The big brain needs a bigger helmet. 

The first item on Ivy's '17 Christmas list, but Georgia says 
she'll wait to get hers with her employee discount.

 The little ol' Saturn 5 rocket. !!!

We also celebrated St. Patrick's Day on Friday with that very traditional Irish food, green Krispy Kreme donuts! And as it's also the anniversary of the very first St. Baldrick's event, I headed over to Fado Irish Pub to promote our September shave and raise some GREEN for the kids!

Speaking of green, thanks to some very generous donors, Georgia has surpassed her $5,000 fundraising goal - and wants to raise it to $10,000! With just over a month to go before she braves the shave, let's see how close she can get to her new goal before the hair hits the floor. She's currently in first place for the event! 

Raising funds for childhood cancer research has been a priority for our family and the Peachy Keens since Georgia was diagnosed seven years ago. We are dedicated to helping fund cures and safer, less-toxic treatments so that kids not only survive their diagnosis, but also enjoy long, healthy lives free of effects from their treatment. Because childhood cancer research receives less than 4% of federal cancer research funding, private funding is already critical to achieving our goals, but if current budget plans are approved and implemented, it will be near-impossible to make any progress, and more and more kids will literally be fighting for their lives. If you find that situation as unacceptable as we do, here are some things you can do right now to make a difference for childhood cancer warriors, survivors, and the people who love them. And thank you again and again and again, from the bottom of our hearts.
