Tiaras for Teresa

I think many of you may have been following the Bartlinski's story.  Their daughter, Teresa, was adopted from China and recently passed away.  She left an amazing mark on many, thousands of people.  You can read all about her story on their family blog,

For the next 2 weeks we will be running a fundraiser for them to help with their medical expenses.

Triathlon of Faith

If you've been following our family's blog for some time, you know that we enjoy a good triathlon.  I actually did my first triathlon as a fundraiser for Carson's adoption.  It wasn't successful as a fundraiser but it did get me hooked on the sport.  My dad really enjoys them. His favorite line is, "I did my usual:  last overall, first in my age group."  I'm determined to keep doing them well into my 70s so I can be first (and only) in my age group. :)

This is Tim after completing his first triathlon of this season.

Tim has committed to travel to Guatemala soon to serve through Potter's House.  (You can learn more about this organization at

He designed this shirt to help raise the money he needs for his trip.  100% of the money goes towards his funding so we are keeping it separate from our Minus 1 site.  If you'd like to help support him and sport a cool, super soft tee at the same time, please let me know.  Shirts can be ordered/purchased through paypal to or email me,, for our address to send a check.

The shirts are $25 and come in adult small - adult 3XL (a tad more of 2x and 3x).

Thanks, friends!
