3 Days to DC!

The excitement is growing in the house (well it is with me at least!) The kids have their count down to when we leave, but I think they are almost slightly reserved about it until we are in the car and going - life has happened in this house on more than one occasion to where we have said we will go somewhere and then we can't.  So I can understand their hesitation, but I am here to tell the world that WE ARE GOING TO DC IN 3 DAYS!! :)

So, ultimately we are as of today only a couple hundred short of the bare minimum it was going to take to pay for gas and hotel to get there.  The closer to that amount we get, the more freedom we have to eat out, sight see and come home with a surprise or two for the kids and the less that comes out of our own pocketbook.  We feel so blessed in so many ways today as we realize how our friends and family have helped us reach our goal.

Aside from our own yard sale (which was rained on 2 days in a row), we had a friend do a yard sale and some of those proceeds were donated to us, we had another friend take some baked goods to their work and sell those as well, we had friends stop by the sale, others bake for us, tables donated for the sale... oh the blessings go on and on.

So thank you all so much for helping our family make a difference in congress this week.

I promise to keep you all updated, and to take lots of pictures! LOL  

After all Fox17 News will be interviewing Willow and I on the 29th and it will air in the Pay it Forward segment on September 7th, (two days before the bowling event).
