Ladies from WOM group at church. We are getting ready for the third annual School Outreach. We collect school supplies at church through donations & then we get the school supply list & bag up the supplies by grades. Then this coming Saturday we will pass out free school supplies to families that come by the church. It is a lot of fun & a way to help out our community.
In this picture we are bagging up the supplies by grade.

The rest of my gifts from my son's mission trip. The rock is from a concentration camp for Russian Jews that my son visited. He carved the Star of David on it, so we wouldn't forget where it came from or the people who died there. The angel & thimble are from Germany & the turtle from Cocoa Beach, Florida where he spent a couple of days the end of his trip.
This is becoming my international shelf in my curio. The nesting dolls & bell are from Russia, the conch shell & cup are from Haiti the music box by the shell is from Switzerland & the angel from Germany. All acquired while on mission trips by someone in my family.
Well, I guess that is my week. Next week will be special as I'm seeing my little sister. Last time I saw her was 10 years ago when she was pregnant with my nephew Gavin. Last time my husband saw her was at our wedding almost 24 years ago. It will be the first time any of us will meet my nephew. Also attending a family reunion of the descendants of my great, great, great, great, great grandfather. Going to be a great time.
