Fun Mail!

I had a fun mail day the other day! First is a Bella card from Ami Cook. She and I along with some other ladies signed up to be part of what Allie is calling Postabella. Basically you sign up for how many people you'd like to send a card to (I did two) and how often (once a month for me) and then Allie assigns partners and you are all set to go. Ami made me this really cute Emmybella card. You all know how much I love pink so this card is right up my alley! It is just so happy! Thank you Ami!

The other card with FUN stuff is from Mia. Mia is an international partner that I got from Sari's blog. She sent this super cute card along with some paper flowers, images, and my very own Magnolia stamp! It was seriously fun to open up that package! Thank you Mia!

Today we sent Jon on his mission trip. All the kids and chaperones met at the church at 6:45 and they will be driving to Spokane to catch a plane to San Diego where they will rent big 'ole 15 passenger vans to drive into Mexico where they will build a house for a family that is, right now, living in conditions that I only have nightmares about. They do this trip every two years but they always go through Amore Ministries. Scott went twice while in high school (duh...of course he did!) and I believe it helped his world thinking some and helped him realize how blessed we are that we are living in this time and in this place. It isn't all work on this trip though. Thursday night and Friday they will spend in San Diego at the beach, Sea World, and one other place that I can't remember the name of right now. Then quite early Saturday morning the kids will fly home just in time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with their families. I'm so glad he will be home for Easter! While Jon is gone we will be going to a fun indoor water park for a couple of days. Swimming The dogs will have a sitter though so all is good!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!

wow! I went as a chaperone with our youth group to Mexico last spring break with Amor and we built a house and a Sunday School addition! They do such a great job organizing all the groups that come down there to work. But the place to camp is something else! I agree - it's a good experience to see how other people live and realize just how much we have here in the US! And it was HARD work!! It felt great to do it!
