Here's some of the highlights... :) Dining Out Book (so I can make good choices), Mileage log (company car), 2 Continental boarding passes, 3 pair of sunglasses, 2 hair clips, 5 lipsticks in the Vera make-up bag
4 packages of gum and a banana. The photo is of a banana peel. I decided to eat it before I took the photo~it was good.
I just watched the replay of Palin’s speech last night. Love her. I started to cry a little when she was talking about special needs (SN) children. She said if you have a SN child and they are elected, you will have a voice and friend in the White House. Cry, cry.
On October 11 I will be traveling to China to work in a SN Foster Home outside of Beijing. Due to sensitivity issues I cannot name the place where I’ll be volunteering on my blog. If you would like more information, you can email me. I will be updating my blog while I’m in China and I’ve been told I can post pictures of the activities we do with the kids. I'm so ready to go but it still seems surreal, even though I've been before. Here are some pictures from my 2006 trip to a SWI in the Fuzhou province.
Babies sleeping. There is no mattress, just a towel separting their little heads and wood.
Helping my new little friend find seashells. She was 4 years old and this was her first time to visit the ocean. She loved it! She got off the bus and ran yelling, "I'm so happy, I'm so happy." We had an interpreter.
The kids showing the nannies their new outfits; their joy was indescribable. It was the first time they got to pick out an outfit themselves and have someone buy it for them. It just breaks my heart.
