Well here it is almost 8:30 at night and I am just now stopping! Today has been so awesome, but I am so worn out. So I put the kettle on, and I am going to make my favorite tea and sit here for a few.
Nikki went out and spoke to a group of men and asked them to sponsor her for her trip. They gave her $100! Then she called a lady that sponsored her last year and that lady gave her $100! I was very impressed that she made $200 today just by talking. Now if only I could get her to get paid every time she spoke!
Amber went up to this neighbor hood that was having a community yard sale and passed out a ton of flyers. The first house that she went to the lady tore the flyer up right in front of her! I told Amber to not let it get her down, and we continued to pass out flyers. Then the phone calls started coming in. We ended up making 7 trips just to pick up yard sale left overs! The garage and dining room are packed, so next weekend Amber will be having a yard sale!
Chris, one of the marines, asked Rusty and I to write a letter of recommendation for him. He want to volunteer with the young marines. I think that is just awesome! Chris is only 19, and he is already thinking of helping other people. I am so proud of him for taking a few weekends out of the month to help make a difference.
I am worn out, I want to take a bath and go to bed! Rusty just gave me a hug and told me that one day the children will look back and know all that I have done for them.
I will try to take some pictures of the quilts that I made. I just used big scraps of material and sewed them together, so they are nothing fancy, but at least the batting and the material did not go to waste.
I am going to go soak in a hot tub. I am just so proud of my children!
