"...a little bit longer, and I'll be fine." This song is sung by Nick Jonas and is about his diabetes diagnosis. Adam went to diabetes clubhouse this week. This is the event he looks forward too every year. He is certain that next year he wants to go to one of the overnight camps, but I haven't decided if I'm ready for yet. Don't worry, it wasn't all about diabetes this week. We did lots of other things as well.

Did you know there is a petition to try to change the national anthem to the song listed? I think it is definitely more appropriate, but at the same time, the Star-Spangled Banner, is an icon. When you finish the first verse you want to yell "Play Ball." When you hear it during the Olympics you know an American has made us proud. This is a little bit of how we celebrated the 4th of July. I am proud to be an American

....and I would walk 500 more--just to get back to Utah. As much as we loved traveling, by the 9th day we were worn out, and tired of the humidity. We gave the kids the option of continuing on to our last two stops, or just going home. At the time we were in Colorado Springs, so we knew we could make it home in a day. They chose going home. We still did lots of stuff before we got to Colorado Springs though. Here is some of it.
We went to the Stockyards in Fort Worth. This is where they used to come from all over and sell their cattle. Today there are still a few cows there and they are herded up the street twice a day. Many of the cows in Texas are Longhorns. We saw a few at NASA. They sell them to help with scholarships at the University of Texas. One of the Longhorns we saw was worth 500,000. That is quite a few scholarships.
...so we went and drove up and down some others. Don't you love the Beach Boys? Just for kicks I thought I'd show you a few more pictures the first week, and what we saw on Sunday.
This is the Battleship Texas.
