It's kind of like
"kids serving kids" in a way!
We were honored to be there and support this
I especially liked seeing Simon's eyes light up
when the birthday kids got their gifts!
The children were BLESSED...
and I think these high schoolers were blessed just as much.
I hope my little guy can have a
heart to serve like these students!
Gotta train 'em young...
to give to others, serve with your whole heart...
and expect nothing in return!
Thank you to those "big kids" who were a true example
of giving with your hearts!

Then, iron your letter on your favorite fabric,
on the wrong side of the fabric.
The print will be facing the ironing board.
Here's the letter "r"
on a camoflage printed fabric that Simon picked out.
Next, cut out letter and peel off the paper on the back.
Place letter on your canvas bag and iron on
the word you chose.
In this case, I chose "Learn"
because that's what we try to do when we go to
After I ironed on my word,
I cut out stars that were freehand drawn.
I like when things aren't even and perfect
because then I don't feel bad when I make mistakes!

Yes, it could be more...
but it is something.
There's a saying for a ministry that I heard,
"Loose Change to Make a Change."
That's all it was...
But every penny counts in the life of
a Haitian right now.
We're still praying for change, healing and restoration
in that situation over there.
I'm going to try not to forget about it...
I don't want to forget about it...
because they are still hurting,
still needing us to help in any way we can.
Thought he should have his very own
Super Hero Cape
with a big fat "C"
He loved his Super Hero role
as I clicked away with my camera...
this was my favorite pose!
oh, and this one too!

the entire time!!
Thank you, Beau!
It was so wonderful to just be creative,
be silly, and be with buddies
all at the same time!
And the best part was...
that this wreath costs about $5 to make....
and it's SUPER cute to hang on a door
inside or outside.
Thanks to Daddy Dave...
I was able to be uninterrupted
and know Simon and his buddy, Max,
were well taken care of.
Love you, Dave!
Love this, Kelly!
Thanks to Tatertots and Jello blog that I found,
fun-filled Craft Day
and walk away with a sweet little wreath
that's perfect all year long!
Thank you, girls!
It was a perfect day!!
Can't wait till next time!!

as I inhail every dessert I see,
every morsal of sweets I get my hands on,
and eat whatever I want.
I need to be little more like my boy...
healthier than I could ever imagine...

I cut some strips (2"x7") in green and orange prints
that matched my Word.
