Todays Programming Is Brought To You By the Letter P...Preschool, Puzzle, and Packages
OK, I know it's cheesey, but hey, I'm the mother of a preschooler and Sesame Street is a part of my life! Yes I said PRESCHOOL! Can you believe it? Since I last posted, Nathanael has started preschool. He goes 2 days a week for a few hours and really loves it! It is so good for my little extrovert to get to be around other kids.
I also wanted to update you all about the adoption and our adoption fundraising. We have had some awesome donations to our puzzle fundraiser. The Martin Family--Ernest, Linda, Star, Nathaniel, Noah and Abigail as well as the Kirk Family--Mark, Sharon, Jake, Delaney, Heather, Ronnie, and Shiana recently purchased puzzle pieces bringing our total to 62/500 puzzle pieces purchased. That's $620 of our $5,000 goal! If you'd like to purchase puzzle pieces with your name on them or the name of your loved ones, you can donate here and it is tax deductible. The puzzle will hang in our child's room and they will know that you helped to love them home to our family through your giving. Each puzzle piece is $10. All 500 pieces sold= our referral fee. This is the amount we need as soon as we are matched with a child, which could be any day or a few more months. We have no idea. Can you skip a coffee purchase or eating out 1 meal to help bring an orphan home to our forever family? We'd be eternally grateful.
Here is an updated picture of the puzzle. Any guesses what it is? Not yet? Well, buy a few pieces or encourage your friends and family to!
Now for the packages...I have been making and selling scarves like these to sell here on our crafting page. Nathanael and I have also been making Jollypops (really cute striped lollipops). All of this = lots of packages to be mailed out and lots of trips to the post office. And I love every minute of it because every package mailed brings us a little closer to Baby Shubert coming home. Nathanael loves it to, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with opening and closing the mail drop door at least 10 times every time we go! Love my little exploring boy!
Now we have added these wire crosses that Brian makes, as well.

We have 2 craft shows next week. Please help us pray that God blesses our efforts and this adoption fundraising. We are so happy that you have joined us on this journey. Thank you for your prayers, love and support!
