Chuck Taylors, angels, and official countdowns . . . Oh, my!
Chuck Taylor's have nothing on Santino's new kicks because Santino's new braces are pretty stylin' and profilin'. Amanda, Santino's mom, told me that they're a bit heavier than expected but judging from the leg lifts I've seen Santino do on FB videos, by the end of the year Santino will have a six pack from lifting those legs (with braces) high up in the air! I wish I could say the same.
Angels continue to come out of the woodwork. I just had a cousin-in-law like four times removed (slight exaggeration) ping me to inquire about making a donation. It's amazing how social media coupled with kind, generous hearts can combine into something so powerful - and all for an awesome little boy with the heart of a warrior (or saint).
I think that the official countdown clock can begin . . . because we are exactly TWENTY DAYS away from the US Kids Golf Championship in Pinehurst, North Carolina! Speaking of six packs, E continues to train as hard as any five year old would to prepare for a world championship. He remains a devoted disciple of Ab Ripper X and has stepped up his practice time at PGA Superstore and Ocotillo Golf Resort with his beloved Coach, Kay Cornelius. And before any of you think we're Tiger Parents, E watches plenty of Godzilla and consumes a tremendous amount of refined sugar in the form of Skittles on a very regular basis.
Thank you again so much for continuing to support Team Santino. Many of you have donated and even more of you have shared Santino's story which means the world to us. Let's keep the momentum going ... this isn't over! Santino's a fighter and so are we ... let's keep marching towards our $5K goal and please help us get there!
