For the love of Edda.

For Edda (who was sick this weekend and was such a trooper - dragged every which way we went this weekend), I decided that my big contribution this year was to help out with the Fairfax, VA stroll-a-thon and to organize the silent auction.

I met so many families and friends who donated and Katherine spent evenings helping me out with the bid sheets and the displays and Jeremy watched the kids and put them to bed by himself for a whole week after he'd taken care them all day and there were a bunch of great folks who helped - with the money collection and with general PR, it was really great. We raised over $5000 at the silent auction alone. Whew, I'm beat.
