Oh, where to begin...there's so much to catch you all up on. I guess I'll start with the most recent. We've been busy as usual, getting started with a new homeschool year. Getting schedules in order, gymnastics classes to attend, choir rehearsals to go to and AWANAS groups to participate in. The newest venture, keeping my schedule busy is starting up another fundraiser for my hubby's next trip to Haiti. We had money set aside for his next trip which was supposed to be last Spring, when the time came, he didn't feel his heart was compelled to go. We instead "invested" in someone else who we thought would benefit from a trip there. We offered our funds in order for this person to go.
So...we are now left trying to scramble and raise funds quickly as his deposits due within the next two weeks. EEK!
Anyhow, we started a FB page for our fundraising efforts. Every Sunday, I will be posting handmade holiday wreaths in hopes that we will raise enough to send him back to Haiti. Here are some pics of the recent wreaths that have been sold. 100% of our proceeds go straight to this purpose. This time around, his trip is to include building a new school at one of the local orphanages. Since most of the buildings were destroyed in the quake of 2010, there's been A LOT of rebuilding.
