Before this day is over, 26,000 children under age 5 will die - most of them from preventable causes like hunger, poverty and disease.
My kids participated in the 30 hour famine held at their chruch this weekend to help raise money and awareness of hunger around the world (yes including the US). They spent the night and day at church, learning about poverty, hunger and ways to help. They made blankets for a local mission as well as organized a can drive.
This is at the local mission after delivering the can goods.

...because with 3 kids, things get crazy fast and time just flies by! Hopefully I can get back into the swing of blogging more regular..... But here's what's been going on here lately:
My daughter has started playing lacrosse (she's #13). This is her before a game, getting "cleared" by the ref.
She also went through a "pre-employment" training program called TeenQuest put on by the Genesee County Regional Chamber of Commerce - they even had a "graduation for the kids" In May they will have a job fair, with the potential of getting a summer job!
Well apparently blogger isn't going to let me post anymore pictures tonight, so I guess I'll just have to update later....
