Still Packing...

Many of you have asked me what a space bag is and the photo above is of a space bag. You fill it with bulky clothing and suck out the air with your vacuum. Then you are left with this really funky looking bag that takes up much less space in your box. It doesn't damage anything.


Here I am tonight sorting and removing tags.


Tim's taping up the boxes.

Tyler has really been wonderful this past week. He just seems to get what this is all about and is so eager to do anything to help. I have been really proud of him during this project.



There are 6 packed boxes in the back waiting to be shipped, 3 very large Hefty storage bags filled with clothing that still needs to be packed, the Target bag is filled with shoes, even though I have been putting some into each box and there are 3 coats that still need to be packed up. Most of the medication has been packed up, also most of the oatmeal, and all of the Craisins are packed. Whew! I'm going to bed now.

When you do a fundraiser, you REALLY do a fundraiser. Maybe the kids schools should sign you up as their fundraising chairperson.

In all your free time, of course.

I'm guessing you're thinking 'this turned out to be a bigger project than I thought it would be!' -- and isn't that just amazing?!?

I'm sorry your family has to do all of the grunt work, while the rest of us get to do the fun stuff -- like shopping! God Bless You all for doing it, though!

I love that Tyler "gets it". What a blessing to learn, at 12, the wonderful feeling of helping others.

This is such a great community, I'm so glad to be part of it!
