Happy Easter!!!

He is risen!! We had a wonderful day. Went to church in the morning and I was just so thankful to be there. Really enjoyed the music and that we can worship freely in such a beautiful place.

This afternoon, my mom made Easter dinner and we had a great time with her and my dad. My dad wins a serious medal for installing some tricky ceiling fans... which may or may not have involved an extra trip to Lowe's and cutting open part of our ceiling. Details, details... but now we are not going to burn up at night! Very thankful. :)

Also today, we have decided that we are going to host our first One SMALL Step for Prader-Willi Syndrome Walk here in Richmond!!! We're shooting for October 6th as the date and we are so excited to see where this will go.

In talking with the Johnsons, an amazing couple from Canada who have a son with PWS, they encouraged us that a walk does not have to be a huge production. We can just pick a date and location, gather some friends, and walk for PWS! That took a lot of the pressure off, and we're going to try to make it a great event. Clearly, you will be hearing more about this as the time draws closer! I am NOT a planner at all and so this is big-time out of my comfort zone, but I feel that it is time for us to take a stand here in Richmond against PWS. Recently, money raised for research funded a hugely important study involving oxytocin and PWS. This research money is making a difference. Look out for coming information about our walk!
