whoa it has been a busy weekend. i got a chance to play as a sub for my indoor soccer team last night. i decided to skip this season because i knew i would miss too many games. it was really nice to get out on a friday night and just get all my energy out. we won 2-1. i also found out that we were the indoor soccer team champions last season. i had missed the game due to traveling. i even got a t-shirt for it. i look forward to going back next season and it was nice to hear that my team missed me.
other than than we have been very busy packing our shoe boxes for samaritian's purse. i am happy to say that we finished up with 24 of them. here is a small peek at all of them.
some people might think my family is crazy for doing 24 of these. but why? we honestly believe that giving without the expectation of receiving is really an amazing gift to give ourselves. and we want to set a good example for noah. it is so easy to look around in the world and see when people have so much more than you and you forget those who have so much less. and hopefully these boxes will bring smiles to 24 faces all around the world.
i will admit that putting this project together took a bit of turning of the creative juices big time for me at first. it wasn't that i wasn't used to using a sheer album but i wanted to do something different with it. i am really happy with how it turned out!
in celebration of this weekend, i am giving out a RAK - between now and tuesday. so post here and tell me 3 things you are thankful for! or share a thanksgiving (or get together) tradition with me. i will pick a winner later this week.
