The Hope Weekend
The Hope Weekend went very well and we raised a lot of money to put towards the cure for Dystonia. The Streitmatter family, including their youngest son Austin, were a tremendous hit and addition to this year’s weekend. Austin Streitmatter showed us the tremendous progress that has happened for people with Dystonia and a commitment by the strong family to help fund the research to finish this and find a cure.
Tyler recently had a birthday and once again the secret pal showed up at our house with a birthday present. Tyler continues to do well in school at Santa Fe College. He goes to a lot of car shows and drifting competitions. Tyler and I were invited to a private tour of the Jacksonville Jaguars facilities and I competed in the punt pass and kick competition. We had fun and Tyler came home with Jaguars gear like a signed football, shades, pads, umbrella, etc.. Tyler has spent a lot of time creating and fine tuning his video and photography skills lately. He has a website and Instagram called Tyler Staab Media.
Samantha has been busy with school, volleyball and now she goes to the gym regularly. We have been able to go to a few gator football games(ugh) and she goes to concerts with her friends.
Luke finished his cross country season and ran well in the states. He continues to take Numa speed, jujitsu, his lacrosse is starting back, and he made his varsity basketball team. Tonight he got his jersey and was able to get number 40. He is excited that he was able to get this number in basketball as well because he plays “For-T”. I know whenever he does this it inspires me and means a lot to his siblings. Luke’s birthday is December 1st and Samantha‘s birthday is January 29.
Keep the prayers coming that the research finds a cure soon.
