Dear McKelvie Families ~

The kids are getting close.  They have figured out that if each child raises in the ballpark of $50, they are within reach (they have inferred that corporate sponsors count!) of me plummeting to the earth from a perfectly good plane.  So - we are in the final stretch of raising the funds.  I promise to hold true to my commitment and will even share a video of the event.  I will also be increasing my life insurance policy this weekend.  :)

This week's news below:
