I used to have this blog, see. And I was pretty good about writing and posting regularly, see. And then I thought about starting a bakeshop, see. And now I just want to go to bed or sit on the couch like a lump. Don’t get me wrong. We’ve been busy. Way busy. Too busy. But in a good way busy. Going to IKEA to get another van load of furniture. Making cookies and cakes for baby showers. Trying to remember and keep appointments. Catching up with friends and family. And so the blog dropped on the list of priorities. And then I start receiving emails and comments inquiring as to what the heck is going on with us. So here I am. After a long hiatus, I’m back and ready to fill you in.
Two weeks ago I went up to Wausau to take my mom’s post for the Fill-A-Back workday. I met up with Ruth and Shelley and we helped unload a bus, trucks, and vans filled with donated school supplies.
We sorted notebooks and folders by color, organized backpacks, and filled bags with the supplies kids will need to start the school year. It was a nice cool day, though we all warmed up pretty quickly as we worked hard to get the supplies in order.
It was great to see the generosity of so many, wanting to help all children start a new school year on equal footing. We even caught glimpses of ourselves on the news that evening!
