Who is April?




When I have seen you guys in person over the last month or so I usually get two questions. The first one is, "How is Forester doing?" The second is, "Who is April? She's rocks!". April is my best friend! We met in 7th grade at Claire Lollis's birthday slumber party. That birthday party was amazing for two reasons. One, I met April. Two, I had my first salt and vinegar potato chip. It was love at first bite. But I digress...
April and I have known each other for 20 years (WHOA!) and she rocks the casbah. We have been through a lot together...oh the stories! Sadly (for me), she lives in Acworth(Atlanta)and not here in Charleston. Of course she wishes she could be here for every moment but she has 3 little ones of her own, 5 and under, and a husband who is a pilot for Jet Blue. She wanted to do anything to help so I asked if she would be willing to get info out there whenever I needed it. SHE HAS BEEN AMAZING!!! I know it's taken a lot of time and effort to keep this blog going and also keeping all of you in the loop via email, etc. Do you know that the blog has had 20,000 hits? Unbelievable. So thank you my sweet Ape for keeping everyone informed and everyone praying. Taking care of your kids and doing this too is no easy task. I LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH!!
