In Brief

I'm fighting a little cold and I need to be at school again tomorrow for the sale, but...a brief update--we had already raised approximately $230.00 when school ended today. We're hoping to raise even more!!! We also had some donations of socks, underwear and toothbrushes/floss made to take with us. There were also a few families interested in adoption information. So, it seems like so far--so good! The sale ends tomorrow night so I hope to have some more news when it ends. Before I turn in, however, I wanted to share this interesting article my brother forwarded to me. It has to do with some changes in international adoption policy according to the Hague Convention. It gives a lot of great information, particularly for people just starting the adoption process or those who might be considering it. That's it for now. G'night.

Don't get yourself to run down, when you get sick you seem to do a good job at it. Remember you are the glue holding your ark together.
Do you think Noah used glue... probably not, you know what I mean.

Wow! $230! That's great. I hope you feel much better in the morning. We'll do our best to sell more stuff tomorrow night. (P.S. Thanks a lot for selling Baye that loud musical rabbit bank today during the sale. Baye LOVES it, but Brett and I decided that it's a sacrifice for us to have it in our house. Ha! If only I could get him to sacrifice it back, then another student could buy it.... j/k)

J, Sorry about the rabbit bank, I tried to convince him of other choices to no avail. When I saw him going out at the end of school he was still playing it with a smile ear to ear!
A, I'm okay, really, just tired with a little head cold/cough. Believe it or not, I know the glue answer. Besides the obvious gopherwood, Noah used pitch and bitumen to seal the ark and make it waterproof. It's good to be a wealth of such useless information.

I can't believe you knew what Noah used to build the Ark. Wait - yes, I can. I must have been sick the day they reviewed that. ;-)

Hope you feel better.
