Together as a family we are doing our first annual “Vision Walk” to help raise money to fight blindness this weekend. We’ve been gathering funds and preparing for this for a while, and I just wanted to write it here just in case anyone else local is wanting to come be on our “team.” (There’s no charge, you just donate if you want and help spread awareness.) It’s a big carnival with a 3-mile walk and we’re excited to get to be involved. For more info. click here.
My dear Mom is coming down to walk with us. (Thanks Mom!) And this has nothing to do with the Vision Walk, but the American Mothers Association has asked my mom and I to speak at a little informal luncheon this Friday at Poppy’s. (The American Mother’s Association is one of my favorite new groups that promotes the “cause” of Mothering. I took pictures for their big event when they named the 2010 Mother of the Year and Young Mother of the Year earlier this month but I haven’t had a chance to post about it yet.) For more info. about them click here…I am hoping to carve out time to be more involved with them in the future because I so believe in their cause.
