I went to school yesterday to eat lunch with Luke. His substitute teacher (his teacher is out on maternity leave for 2 months) came up and asked if I was Luke's mom... That's always a scary question!!! Anyway, I said yes. And she went on to tell me what a great kid he was, a great student, hard worker, good reader, etc! And I said thank you SO much, I don't get many compliments on Luke! And she said, "On Luke?!! He's wonderful!!" I said, well doesn't he have too much energy, and she said, "Luke?!" AHH! Music to my ears!
To make a long story short, our oldest Andrew decided this summer at one of our camps, that like the speaker said, he was NOT to young to change the world. So he decided on his own he'd raise $2,800 to support this village in India. Lo and behold, in less than two months.. due to the kindness of many people, he indeed raised the money. He is waiting anxiously to get news and pictures of his well.
On this website you'll see his picture, if you scroll down a little bit. You can also watch a video and read more about what his money went too, if you are interested! He decided it was awfully easy to raise $2,800 and wants to do it again ASAP!
For the moment I'm a PROUD MOMMA! :)
