Out and Back in One Day

But this was a different kind of moving than what we normally do.  On Thursday night, mommy and daddy started packing things up in our house on wheels.  Daddy unhooked everything and put our slides in like we going to be moving, but then we didn’t move on Thursday night.  We actually slept inside Aunt Sally and Uncle Randy’s house on Thursday night.  I was a little bit confused because our house on wheels was still in their yard.  Normally, if we sleep in Aunt Sally and Uncle Randy’s house, our house on wheels isn’t in the yard, but this time it still was.  Although, I was confused, I didn’t care too much because I like going inside Aunt Sally and Uncle Randy’s house.  There are always a few little snacks under Uncle Randy’s chair, so I just clean those up for him.

When we first go into their house, I look all around and sniff the entire place to make sure that everything is ok.  It’s always ok, but I still have to just make sure.

Jeff Woytovich – Helping kids and families deal with Alopecia

Jeff and I have known each other for a little over ten years now.  He is one of my best friends and we share a passion for helping others, especially kids.

Jeff started the Children’s Alopecia Project (CAP) in 2003 when his daughter, Maddie started to lose her hair.  After going through a rollercoaster of emotions, Jeff felt that it was important to create a support group for other kids and families who were also dealing with alopecia.

What started out as a few families in the Philadelphia region has now grown to an international nonprofit organization that has helped countless children, and their families understand that it’s ok to be different.

The Drive

I think that we all have our own places and things that we find therapeutic.  For me, one of those things is the drive.  Being in our motorhome and heading down the open road is incredibly serene and tranquil to me.

So far on our journey, I have done all of the driving, with the exception of maybe about 100 feet or so when Sandy pulled us up or back in a campsite to get us lined up better to our hookups.  I tease her about that quite a bit, but to be truthful, I really don’t mind doing all of the driving at all.  As a matter of fact, it is quite good for my soul.

At the end of the day, I guess that it’s in my blood.  As you all know, my mom did this traveling thing on her own, so she did all of the driving by herself.  My dad was an over-the-road truck driver, he did all of his driving by himself.  So, between those two wandering souls, how could I have ended up doing anything different?

So Many Places, So Many Smells

We woke up really early in the morning and left Stephen and Sherry’s house, where we had been for over three weeks.  I like going to Stephen and Sherry’s house.  They have a neat trail behind their house and lots of hills for me and daddy to walk on.

When we’re at Stephen and Sherry’s house Lizze and Alex love being around me.  Lizze goes on walks with me and mommy and daddy.  If mommy and daddy go to see some friends then Alex will feed me and give me treats and one time he even came out to our house on wheels and hung out with me and did his homework.  It was really fun.  I like Alex.  He’s really nice to me.

Anna Kimbrell – A Trailblazer Starting to Give Back

As we were mapping out our route on this leg of our journey, I realized that we’d be going through Anna Kimbrell’s neck of the woods.  I had seen on Facebook that she had just started conducting some baseball clinics for girls at K3 Sports Academy in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

I reached out to her to see if she’d be ok with us stopping by the clinic and then doing a podcast together.  She quickly agreed to the podcast and I was excited to finally get a chance to meet her in person and hear her story.

Kimbrell, a catcher for Team USA Women’s baseball has been affiliated with the organization since she was only 15 years old.
