Greetings to all from the Southern California arm of Team Marius! I just wanted to give a little report on the wonderful time we had with Marius and Ionut while they visited us Woodward/Ludlows here in San Diego.
I thought we'd share just a couple of things with all of you about Marius and Ionut. We wanted to let you know what was happening in their lives, their schoolwork and their playtime! The most exciting to us is the abundance of pictures and video and slide show entertainment we've added to the site. So come and browse!! www.teammarius.org
Marius loves to be out on his bike. Here is some early video of one of his first rides.
In early September thanks to Tom Farnsworth, a local physical therapist, Marius got a chance to see the Arizona Diamondbacks play. Here are some pictures of the fun. They got to meet the mascot, Phoenix Suns standout Dan Majerle, and made a great friend in Janie who took super care of them.
Just a little snippet from last night's excitement. I took Marius and Ionut with me to get Jeremy's (7 yr. old) haircut last night. We went to some friends who had fed us a couple of weeks ago and they have a darling dog and I knew Marius would love to get out and go play. They have two children on either side of him that are so great with him. Marius and Abby ran circles around the house chasing poor Gigi the dog.
News from us here at Team Marius! It's been a busy month! We returned from some sight seeing adventures in Arizona and Utah and did some fun interviews as well as Thank You receptions while we were there. The media in Utah, where the girls go to school, has been so wonderful and has helped in our efforts to raise funds and to tell Marius' story.
Jens Dana of the Deseret News did a very nice article on Marius that was published today. It is accompanied by an audio slideshow put together by Mike Terry. Here is the link to the slideshow--it is a must see!
