WHW 13

So much has been happening around here that I haven't had time to blog about it all! A list of the happenings:
  • We are keeping up with the adoption stories of friends who are traveling to get their kiddos;
  • building a headboard for our master bedroom (when I say "we" I mean I am helping with the "vision" and Brad is doing the hard stuff);


  • finalizing plans for our BIG FUNDRAISER that is quickly approaching
(SHAMELESS PLUG: 425 Downtown--December 2--$25/ticket--Music--BBQ--Franz family--Scott Hardwicke--Silent auction); 



"I am loved!"
  • organizing VB paperwork for club season;
  • gathering some of the boys' clothes to send to the orphanage;
  • delivering t-shirts and 31 bags (earned $321 + silent auction items for adoption!);
  • teaching;
  • and of course, wrangling in the Littles in our home.




Another plug: BERCH (a local band that had a cult following at Missouri State University in its hay-day a few years ago) is RETURNING for a reunion show at Nathan P. Murphy's tomorrow night. AND they are such cool and gracious guys that they will be doing a "name your own price" gig in which all proceeds will go toward our adoption and the Castro's (domestic; recently MATCHED) adoption! See, I told you they were cool guys. If you'd like to come hear some great music, bring whatever kind of cash you'd like and enjoy it with us at 9 PM tomorrow night.
