Ethin is so much a part of life every day here. I am at times completely shaken by the reality of this life I am living without him here. Sometimes it hits me like a train. When I least expect it to there are moments when I can not even move sometimes I find it hard to breathe. Thankfully these moments are no where near as often as they were when Ethin first passed away, but now when they hit me they hit me with a greater force. I find it hard at times to look at his pictures or to really put thought into him. How terrible that must sound but sometimes it is just to hard.
In other news the J Triplets and I are enjoying our summer!!! We have gone to Lake Michigan, Brooks Lake, Fremont Lake, Rafting down the river, played ball, watched fireworks, had bonfires, and who knows what else but we have truly enjoyed it all so far. This update will include some pictures of our amazing summer thus far!!! I promise!
So with the fun stuff there has been little time for the serious stuff, but we are planning a Golf Outing for EHSB....Here is that info and then I'll share some pics!

Ethin's Heart Still Beats has teamed up with Briar Hill to offer a a fun day of golfing to help make the difference in the heart of a child! The day promises to be fun as four men/women golf all 18 holes with the chance to bid for bragging rights for longest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt. There are many ways to help be a part of the day and we hope to see you out there!!! At the clubhouse we will be having a ton of fun with raffles, 50/50, and some other fun activities.
Hole Sponsorship is a great way to get your business' name out there for a day and for a great cause! EHSB is offering two different types of hole sponsorships. We are also offering a split sponsorship. There is a $300 sponsorship that is a 4ftx2ft vinyl sign that if you purchased this year any year after this year you will pay the smaller sponsorship fee and always use this bigger sign! There is also a $100 sponsorship and that is the size of a yard sign and is two sided. The split sponsorship is $50 yard sign and is one sponsor on one side and another on the other. Sponsor a hole and play golf $475/$275 accordingly.
The outing is a four man scramble. Every hole will be captains choice for the card. The cost for the four man team is $200. Your $200 covers 18 holes of golf, a cart, and lunch for the day. Tee off will be a shotgun start at 9am with 18-30 teams entered to golf; 30+ teams will have a tee off in the afternoon. There will be extra cost to enter contest for closest to the pin, longest drive, and longest putt. We will also be selling mulligans 2 per person which limits it to 8 per team for the day. You will be able to buy them the morning of the outing. 1st place traveling trophy will be awarded as well as a trophy for each team member of the team. Awards for 2nd and 3rd place teams will also be awarded. EHSB is also offering teams the opportunity to buy shirts for the golf outing this is an extra cost of $10 per shirt.
