Benefit Crop

You can now register for the July 30th Crop benefiting the Andrew Olson Foundation. $40 and you receive a feeling of compassion & caring, along with meals, snacks, prizes, etc for 12 hours! woo!

In the short time the foundation has been established we have already been able to donate $5000 to help build a school playground; send an ill child and his family to Disney World; donate $500 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma society.

We are certain that with your help and a successful crop the foundation will be able to help even more.

really...almost a month??

i had high hopes of more posts... :(

the end of the year went fabulously -- parties & meeting CAM JANNSEN of the Blues & movies & fun & waving the kids good bye on the last day!! since the last day was may 27th, it was great to start the summer break with a long weekend, lol, and a holiday!

since school let out i have been to a wedding, had another summer school orientation, taken meghan to the zoo, done a "taste of st. louis", eaten Pappy's BBQ, seen a movie, and celebrated my friend's son, caleb, graduating! woohoo!!

still nothing on the job front :( it is discouraging because i have friends getting interviews & jobs...and i am hearing nothing...but it also gives me hope since there are people getting hired...

look for another post tomorrow (sunday) for the challenge!!!
