I just checked the website, again...cause I'm a stalker and waiting on more posts...and realized my message got cut off! Anyhow, Dakota has been at my place all day and is having a sleepover with Bella! Just wanted to you to not worry about her, she's doing great, and just focus on what you guys are doing! It's so amazing and I'm so happy for you both! Keep believing, just like we are, and enjoy every moment! Love you and miss you both! xoxo

Keep it up! Sis - your stupid cat keeps biting me when I'm sleeping!! HERE'S TO YOU ALL: "Follow your dream. Take one step at a time and don't settle for less, Just continue to climb. Follow your dream. If you stumble, don't stop and lose sight of your goal Press to the top. For only on top can we see the whole view, Can we see what we've done and what we can do; Can we then have the vision to seek something new, Press on. Follow your dream." (by Amanda Bradley)

"Most people see what is, and never see what can be" Albert Einstein. All of you are giving those of us not with you, a chance to see more than what is in front of us. You are giving us the opportunity to see how courage, committment and determination can make a difference in our world. We thank you for showing us what can be. Love, mom/AS

TJ SOOO GOOD TO HEAR YOUR VOICE!! -- take care of each other- it sounds like the coming days will be tougher. With all my love from home.

For: All the "11ers"

Keep up the good work. You guys are going to rock out the Lava Tower - a tough day but worth every moment. The payoff is the gorgeous view of the Barranco Wall (my personal favorite!). You are an amazing group with an amazing support group behind you. Enjoy the stars at night and the views during the day. Don't ask Rick any questions because he won't give you a real answer anyway. :) Yusuf is the man!!!
