Wow! We can't believe how many things were donated, financial gifts were given, & the amount of people who volunteered to help. It's so awesome to see what can be done when so many people work together.

All Thursday and Friday huge amounts of items were collected & placed at the garage sale site. My mother-in-law & my dad rode around town with huge horse trailers getting everything together. Special thanks to them both. I think by the end they were both sleep walking! ha!Stuff just kept coming and coming and coming. It was great!
Saturday most volunteers arrived around 4:00 a.m. to get things going. By 7:00 a.m. we had plenty of shoppers. Here is the early morning crowd.
Bauer and I came out around 7:30 a.m. (Adam wasnt' able to be there. He was taking a huge 6 hour test in Winter Haven.) Bauer was loving every minute!!! What a little social bug!! It was neat being able to show him to everyone. One guy said, "Well, that's good. I know I'm giving to a good cause now."
I must say Bauer was the handsomest boy out there and was exhausted after working so hard.

We are so thankful for every minute that was put into this. To all who helped, gave, & prayed THANK YOU!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
A BIG THANKS TO THE FAMILY PRACTICE CENTER! Thank you for loving us. We appreciate you so very much. It would not have been possible without you.

Adam and I were reminded how great it is to see & feel such awesome love. Sometimes we think that the little things we do for people aren't worth much, but without everyone doing "a little bit" there wouldn't have been any blessing at all.
This weekend was an awesome example of God taking every piece, large & small, and making it a huge success!!
