Moving right along.....




Wow, we have only nine days left in this house.....I should be emotional about it, but because we have moved so much in the past I am kind of numb. I keep hoping that someday somewhere we will be settled and we will find a home we LOVE and stay put. But, thinking about that and all the moves we have made, would I change anything....NO. How could I? If we hadn't moved so much we wouldn't have had all the opportunities we have had or met so many wonderful people and we certainly wouldn't have Hope and Grace. I am thankful for the experiences we have had and look forward to new ones. Living in Washington DC will have it's good points, how could I think otherwise?? It is a city alive with history and change. I look forward to that.

So, I may not be posting for awhile, other than our Chinese New Year event on Saturday. I think (pretty sure like, 99%) that we sold our house. Yeah!!! We will be looking for a new one in VA. But good things are coming!! I am going to start the sewing site again once we are settled. Grace's orphanage sponsor is very much in need of funds and I will be donating a percentage of the money to their organization. I am also very taken with a 10 year old girl in Ethiopia that desperately needs to be adopted. I am thinking of sponsoring her also with the proceeds.

Anyone need any girls clothes for spring????

Hi! My name is Ashley and I found your blog through Ni Hao Y'all. I saw that it mentioned that you needed some fundraising ideas. I have done quite a bit of fundraising in the past for different organizations. Feel free to check out my blog ashlynnrose.blogspot.com. I also live right up 95 from you (once you move) in Baltimore. If you need help let me know. I haven't done any personal fundraisers, but I could brainstorm!!
