As a public school teacher, I welcome ALL children into my classroom. Each child precious, each child full of wonder, each child different. But occasionally there is one who needs more help than I can give.
That’s where my personal heroes come in to save the day.
Da da ta da ta da!!!
The Grande Ronde Child Center.
Here these children and their families receive the counseling and support they need.
But even heroes need money.
But what ever does a girl wear to a Wild West Buffalo Burger Feast?
Perfect opportunity for another refashion!
I started with this thrift store skirt and shirt.
Sew new side seam of skirt.
Channeling my inner cowgirl now, I’m ready for some buffalo burgers.
For me the evening at the barn was a huge success.
Could anything be better than homemade potato salad, supporting a good cause, and spending the evening with good friends in one of my favorite places on earth?
Hard to believe, but, yes, it was EVEN better than that!
After everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to Ruggedly Handsome Contractor Husband the dessert auction began. Tom, Linda, Barb and Craig won the bid on this amazing turtle brownie cake for Steve.
One of his favorites!!!
But it didn’t stop there…..No. It. Didn’t.
Our sneaky friends also won the bid on a print of a Don Gray painting called Homage to Jena and gave it to Steve for his birthday! The original hangs in the living room of Robert Sheehy. It’s a beautiful rendition of the Sheehy Barn. One of my Ruggedly Handsome Contractor Husband’s favorite projects ever!
How lucky are we to have such good friends!
How lucky are we to live in such a caring and supportive community!
We are truly blessed!
