Now this one is HUGE, but GREAT! :) I have big plans for the foundation. I have also recently joined a new civic group that some young women in our community has started called The Khelpanan Society. One of it's main projects is a park for young children. Hopefully, working side by side, we can really make an impact in our community. :) Just pray for us, that things will come together and will really reach the ones it needs to. Gregg wants to put a bronze statue in the park of a young boy and girl to represent B&K. I think that is a wonderful idea. Anyway, just kinda updating everyone on this. We have a lot of stuff to do to get this going. I know we can do it, it's just a matter of staying on top of it. We have so many wonderful friends who are excited in helping us with this. I pray so much that we can reach people through B&K's story.
They are finishing up everything in the house this week. We move in Friday!! :) Gregg and I were over there until 9:30 last night doing some cleaning. I cleaned the cabinets and tubs while Gregg took all the stickers off of the windows and cleaned up the garage. We are thrilled that it is so close. I started going through the roll top desk in our living room last night and found so much stuff of B&K's an entire, unopened pack of diapers, a box of wipes (i kept their diapers and wipes in a drawer in the roll top since it was easy access from the living room) I found a box of sidewalk chalk in there, several color wonder coloring books and marker, many books that were half chewed from Kenadi and her fetish of eating EVERYTHING.... there is so much... I really don't know what we are going to do with all their stuff.. i can't seem to want to part with anything, I know Kaidi will get some use out of a lot of their stuff, but there is so much that is personalized. It's hard. I had to go to the monument place on my lunch break today to get a copy of the etching to make sure it was like we wanted. I really didn't like it too much, i think i would rather do the picture in porcelain. the porcelain has a lifetime warranty and i feel like the etching, over time, would not look good. I really don't know what we will choose. We are going to look at a headstone of a boy that was killed in a car accident when I was in school. His dad told us that his was etched so we want to go look to see. We have to let her know something this week in hopes to get it in in time for their birthday May 9 which just so wonderfully falls on Mother's Day this year. :( Ugh.. well, I hope you all have a wonderful night. God Bless!
