Hi we are the Matthews family, and we are participating in the Family Edition of the My Heart Challenge! We are participating in the challenge this year to not only get healthier in general, but to make all of our hearts strong so that we will be able to keep up with each other for years to come.
We are motivated to participate in the challenge because we do have a family history of health problems that we would rather avoid. We also want to keep Amelia healthy so that her kidney transplant can last as long as possible. We are hoping to break the current Guinness record for the duration of a kidney transplant that is currently at 43 years.
Here's a little bit about each of us in our little family:Justin the Stay at Home Dad that is looking forward to getting to the mountains this summer and out-hiking, and out-fishing, all of the kids.
. We are posting weekly updates for the whole family and each of us is writing about our experiences in microblogs, which are also on our family blog.
