68 days....

Been a hectic few weeks, even though we thought things were due to slow down. Just this weekend we have attended the Motown night @ Skipton Rugby club, RideoffroadUK end of season "do", and been to see "The Sewer Rats". We have also been trying to sort out the last stages of the Christmas raffle, as well as taking delivery of the Christmas cards (both still available...).

We were also chuffed to see the ball photos. Great job by Paul - take a look at if you want to rekindle memories of the night or even see what you missed.

It still keeps coming as well. Dynamo Joe's Ceilidh takes place on Friday - if you are interested, tickets are still available. Then we plan to say hello to some kind/mad souls who are running the Abbey Dash @ Leeds at the weekend. The weekend after (Sunday 28th) is Silsden's Christmas Market. The Yummy Mummies will be reprising their role of Coffee Morning hostesses, but the highlight for us is that the Gala Committee have so kindly asked Evan to switch on the Christmas tree lights. 4:30pm on the day. It kind of sums up how things have snowballed and that the whole community is really behind Evan's Big Journey. Bit overwhelming at times....

On a personal front, we have started to think about Christmas - and will hopefully get chance to find everything we need on Saturday when we take a well earned (well, I think so...) half day off and nip to Meadowhall. 

Oh yes, then we need to plan a trip to America....

We have made "Facebook friends" with a lot of other families who are also going through the same process and, as we get closer to the trip, every update that shows what they are thinking about or have been through has special resonance with us. Certainly makes it feel much more real, and i'll admit a little scary. 

Well, that's all for now. Thanks again to everyone who has helped at any level, with any event, made a donation, or just generally helped us feel less stressed.
