I’m running down to Jacksonville to see the boys this weekend. My oldest turned 7 last Monday, and I promised him I would come down there for his birthday. It’s a grueling trip, and I’ll spend almost as much time on the road as with them, but it’s worth it. My youngest, Finn, is going through a phase where he doesn’t want to talk on the phone, so I’ve barely had any interaction with him since August. I need to see him and let him know that Daddy thinks about him every day. Collin is getting to the age where he remembers from one trip to the next what we do, so when I mentioned that we would be staying in the same hotel, he got excited.
I probably won’t get to post an update until next week, so please remember to help me spread the word about our fundraiser for the farm. The proceeds come directly to me, and I will use every penny for expenses directly related to renovating the building and installing the first growing unit. Even if you can’t donate any money yourself, you can help out by posting this on your blog, tweeting it, or sharing it on Facebook. Please, help us reach our goal of launching the first unit by mid-May. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement.
