Still trying to catch up!

First off, I just want to thank Aubrey for writing about Jodi again today...she is trying to get lots of people to send Jodi cards on her "re-birthday" a.k.a. transplant day.   I think that would be pretty awesome!  Check out Jodi's story on Caringbridge and she has her address there if you would like to send her one.  Jodi loves cards :)

Back to what I was going to post today...this past Saturday my friend Stephanie and I went to the "Dabo Swinney Lady Football Clinic" in Clemson.  This is a way for Dabo (Clemson Headcoach) and his wife, Kathleen, to raise lots of money for his All In Foundation, which supports breast cancer.  And it is also a perfect day for female football lovers to learn even more about the program.

We were split into large groups and went to the following sessions:
Class about Defensive
Shopping at local vendors...my sisters store being one of them (of course you have to have that) 
Q&A with Kathleen about breast cancer
Tour of weight room
Class about offense
Tour of locker room and training room

It was so much fun, better than I ever imagined it would be.  Here are some pictures we took that day...
(just to warn you..this may be picture overload)
Dabo welcoming everyone

Our transportation for the day

Defensive Coach

Defensive is my favorite part of football...so I loved this class

Casey, Heather, Ashley and me at The Beaded Tiger table (they worked the table for Jodi)

Just a small part of the money that was raised..I think it was around $45,000

Football players played "CU Bachelor" for some entertainment

Elvis even showed up

Weight room

he jumped up there in one hop! impressive

they showed off their muscles...like a runway :)

pretended to strip for us

Thought this was a funny sign in the bathroom
