    Ok those of you who are helping with Mexico I wanted to say a BIG Thank you!!!! If you are still interested in helping there are some things we specifically need now!!

    Shampoo, tooth brushes, gallon bags, religous stickers, and pencils.
    To add to the list from abcteach forum we now are in need of diapers sizes 3 & 5, girls underware and pillows. We are going to try to take as much as we can and someone gave us powdered milk and Sandy at ABC sent coloring books and crayons a big need that was met. Plus we got alot of combs and soap.

    Oh yeah I almost forgot!!!! CANDY!!! Hard candy for the children.

    So if you feel God speaking to your heart about the kids of Mexico in the orphanage you can email me for my address and what you want to help with!!

    Hey Jimmie Lu - I will update our list for the new items you are looking for. We need to set up a time to get together so I can get these items to you. We're not done collecting yet and having fun doing so. We had many items donated by our homeschool co-op.

    Crystal and Kids :) :p ;) :cool: :D :) ;)

    Crystal,
    I was wondering about your notebook also. I think that our family was supposed to be 4th to receive it, and I have yet to see it. Hope it's not lost out there somewhere in Post Office Land! Have you heard from anyone letting you know that they have it?
    Just wondering.....
    Heidi

    Heidi - I think you are 4th. Last I checked in on it Lorna had it and was ready to ship it off. She was 2nd on the list. You should get it soon.

    Jimmie Lu - I hope it gets to you before July too. When it gets closer to the date I will get in contact with you. I think it will be neat to meet you and Heidi!!!

    notebook

    Ok, I'll start watching for the notebook and I'll let you know when we receive it. If I were you, it would be driving me crazy wondering where it is! :eek:

    traveling notebook

    I actually did just send out an e-mail to see if I could find its location. I know Gina had it and mailed it to Lorna. Lorna e-mailed me to let me know she got it and that was the last I heard. Vivian should have it now and that would make Heidi next!! I'd start looking for it soon!! If you could let me know when you get it I like keeping track of it.
    Thanks,
    Crystal :D

    To: Heidi

    I heard from Lorna - she mailed the traveling notebook Monday the 19th. Vivian must have it by now. I havent heard from her yet, but I would expect the notebook with in the next week. After you there are four more people until it gets to Jimmie Lu. People are keeping it longer then I thought, but I understand how these things get put on the back burner. I didnt even mail it out when I wanted. :eek:
    Lets hope it get to Jimmie before she leaves for Mexico!!
    Thanks gals,
    Crystal

    Crystal~
    I guess there's no way you can change the order? Like, would you want me to send it to Jimmie Lu, and then she can just send it on to whomever I am supposed to send it to? (We could just cross her name and address off the list so it doesn't go to her twice).
    Just a suggestion. I'm sure you guys are anxious to get the notebook back and see what people have put into it.
    Heidi

    No worries Jimmie

    Dont worry Jimmie Lu I wont change the order. That was the hardest part! I wanted to make everyone happy and I had a lot of requests for a certain order. I think it would be too confuesing to change it now that it is already in route. I have written in it to please keep it just a few days - like maybe two or three. If the rest of the group of ladies keeps to that schedule it will reach you by June. I know that can be hard to do especially this time of year with all of us ending our school year, but lets hope. That would work out great to get it back when we meet.
    Where is Heidi located again?

    Hershey??

    Would Hershey be a good middle point for all of us? We dont have to make arrangements yet, just wanted to throw that out there to think about. We could also meet at my house. Which ever would be best for you and Heidi.

    Heidi & Jimmie Lu

    Hershey is about 15 minutes from me. If I can fit everything in my trunk we can meet at Hershey. I was thinking of the chocolate factory tour for all of us to do. Have you ever been there Heidi or Jimmie? Its our favorite free activity. I use it as a reward to my kids when we have a hard week of schoolwork. We are going up tomorrow becasue my hubby has off work and said he has a chocolate craving. :D I can scope the area for parks if you'd all rather meet some place like that.
    Now you both will have to let me know your childrens ages because I know my kids will ask. You can send me a private e-mail if you prefer. In case your kids want to know about my kids -
    :cool: Blaze is 12
    :D Alex is 12
    ;) Elle is 10
    :rolleyes: Pheonix is 9
    :p Megan will be 8 when we meet
    :) Madi is 6
    :D Jessie is 4

    Hi Jimmie Lu ~
    We would love to help with your Mexico trip :) I know there are different things you need - if you would email me privately and let me know exactly what you want - we would love to get it to you! Our Sunday School class just went to Mexico last weekend - they had an amazing experience! We have a group that makes the trip down there once a month - so awesome!
    Thanks,
    Shaina

    Yes - Free

    Oh yeah its free. I couldnt afford to go there as often as I do with my gang if it wasnt. :) There is a picnic area there, but I will still look for a park close by in case you'd rather that.
