We wanted to give you a little heads up on what is going on around here.
I know that I have some new readers that may not know that my dad passed away this past December.
It has been a rough 10 months.
You can read about it here, here, and here.
Actually, dad's death it is what got me the courage to start all these DIY projects. I haven't really been able to mourn since I have two crazy boys to take care of. The projects have giving me a chance to...escape reality.
Anyways, on Sunday I will be starting a trip to head toward the Dominican Republic. In LaRepresa my dad's church will be dedicating a wing of a school that they build in his honor.
Why a wing of a school in the Dominican Republic? Well on the day of dad's death the pastor and other ministers were at the school discussing adding a wing to the school. They wanted to do something to honor my dad and thought it appropriate to name the wing after him.
Here is a link from the church where I could find a little bit of info on the school.
I would appreciate your prayers. This will be an emotional trip for me, my mom, and brothers. Plus my Mother in law will be flying in to help Mr. Genius to hold down the fort. They will need your prayers too.
With all that said, I will be get back to making projects when I return.
That, you can definitely count on.
Before I sign off, I wanted to show you some pictures of the boys from today.
I bought their Halloween costumes and they are absolutely thrilled to be Batman and Robin.
So thrilled that they will not take the dern things off.
But then again, I can't really complain because they totally crack me up with them on.
But I do wonder if I should work on their manliness. Maybe it is a good thing that I will be leaving for a little while so they can learn to be a little more macho.
This is what I got when I said...Show me how tough and strong you are.
Then I said...Show me your muscles!
Well, atleast they are cute.
