We have had such a WONDERFUL time over the past year and a half enjoying the sketches of my wonderful children and some special guests too :0) Truth be told, the last few times I asked for sketches I could see the enthusiasm waning a bit and as they get older (sniff sniff!) we have so much going on here...basketball (for both boys and my older girl this year), swimming, bigger homework loads, and just recently Madelynn not only joined the school newspaper...she FOUNDED it! Can you believe that? My girl LOVES to write and when there was no paper, she approached the school and asked severalteachers until one finally said yes :) I am SO proud of her!
That all being said, with my growing commitments and lots of work ahead of me as well, work that I LOVE, we are closing our doors. I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for your enthusiasm, playing along each week and for the wonderful participation we've encountered.
Most of all, I want to thank my Daredevils. These girls remain my friends always and have seen us through some pretty wild changes and through it all, I know each and every one of them has my back and has had so much to contribute as team members. Please leave some love for:
- Andrea Murdock
- Cassie Larson
- Heather Schlatter
- Jacquie Peifer
- Kim Ross
- Kris Palakiko
- Krista Vantol
- Randi Wall
- Rebecca Ednie
- Sara Henton
This week we have ONE FINAL CHALLENGE. An inspiration photo chosen by my fearless Team Leader , Jacquie. Ugh...what can I say, this is a tough one. If not for Jacquie, I would never have been able to re-start the dare after LAST year's summer hiatus. Jacquie has been more than just our wonderful leader and enthusiastic Daredevil, she is my friend and I adore her. THANK YOU Jacks for all your hard work! We love ya!
