For about the past eight months or so, I've had the privilege of working with some really great people planning a 5k and 1-Mile Fun Run, called the Orphan Run, that was held June 1st. Amazingly, we had about 1,000 participants and it raised close to $15,000 for Project Hope Worldwide. We owe it's total success to God - there's no other way a Run in our small town and being it's first year could have gone over so well without His hand on it. It was a super fun experience and I look forward to planning our 2nd annual Orphan Run to be held next year on Friday night, May 31st. Stay tuned for more details! ;-)

I leave for a missions trip to Uganda soon so the kids at our church wrote letters to the children at Calo Me Lare, the orphanage we'll be working at. It's such a great experience for the kids to connect with each other in a different country and share life together. I'll take the letters with me and hopefully they'll get a chance to write them back.
Our homeschool co-op took about 9 girls to Turkey Creek School in Enid, Oklahoma, one day this past week. It is by far my girl's favorite field trip. They went last year, too, and now they look forward to it every year. They love to dress up in pioneer clothes and participate in the school day in a one room school house. Here's pics from our fun day...
