Don't Forget!

To get your application turned in for the 2011 Children's Congress. You can go through their Facebook Application and be entered into a drawing for a bypass position straight to the congress.

Maybe you are wondering what the Children's Congress is about? This is from the website,

"Every two years, JDRF International Chairman Mary Tyler Moore and over a hundred children with type 1 diabetes gather in Washington, D. C. to meet face-to-face with some of the top decision-makers in the U.S. government. The children, ages 4 to 17, represent all 50 states and the District of Columbia. As participants in JDRF's Children's Congress, they have a unique and empowering opportunity to help Members of Congress understand what life with type 1 diabetes is like and why research to find the cure for diabetes and its complications is so critical. Children's Congress will take place on June 20-22, 2011 in Washington, D.C."

What a neat oppurtunity. That would be great if Sydney and you got to come. Of course we will still be living out here and only live about 10 miles from there and Jim works at the Capital so maybe we could see you as well. Ashley and Lorne live a little farther away but they have ventured down here before. We could host the party!!!
