Playing Catch Up

I've been home for about a week now from my vacation to Ione, WA. I went to spend times with dear friends. My friend, Michelle, recently bought a gorgeous home there and our friend Pam and I flew out to enjoy some time together with her! After our time together, I have decided that "girlfriend" vacations should be mandatory for every mom! We had so much fun together and it was so nice to relax for a few days!

When I got back, I hit the ground running trying to help Hannah get everything ready for the quarterly fundraiser night at McAlister's & Coldstone. We've added "Art With Heart" merchandise now and it seemed to be a big hit with the kids. I am so impressed that after 6 quarterly fundraisers these kids are still so faithful about coming out and volunteering their time! We have some great young adults that bless us every time they are together! They wound up raising $478 for St. Louis Children's Hospital Art Therapy Program and collecting several bags of donations! We are so proud of them!
