Asking the Governor for a favor!

Carson got to see his good friend, Governor C. L. "Butch" Otter, and, Lori, the first lady tonight at the Ironman CdA opening ceremony. Carson took the opportunity to ask the governor to help him write up a resolution for an annual Type 1 Diabetes Awareness day at the State Capitol....before I knew it the first lady had whisked Carson off to talk to the Governor's assistant and get all the info...I am very proud of my son and the advocacy work that is always at the forefront of his mind!

 Our 16 year old friend, Maggie, has cancer and Carson asked Governor Otter if he could take a picture with "Flat Maggie" to show his support!  Of course, he graciously said, "Yes" and sent his best wishes for her from Idaho!
When Lori, the First Lady, heard Carson talking to the Governor, she wanted to honor Maggie.  She took off her IRONMAN jacket and put it on "Flat Maggie" making her an IRONMAN! She sends her best wishes, as well!
