A Devotion to help others

So I recently came into contact with Heather Von St. James, a courageous mother, wife, and survivor of mesothelioma cancer. I had previously written about her story and was asked to share it on my blog. I admire her personally because of her constant strength, courage, and devotion to help others. Her mission is to get her story out and to give hope to as many people as she can. I'm very happy to share her story with you again and would love for you to take a few minutes to watch her video. Thank you to Heather for sharing her awesome story and thanks for watching! :)

Avery's Dolphin

Mrs. Rangel's class was assigned a sea creature project this week! Avery had chosen to do a report on dolphins, design a 3D model of it, and present it to the class. Here is the final work of art. She (we) molded the dolphin out of clay and painted it. We put lots of glitter for the water to make it sparkle. We would've liked to make it a bit bigger but figured she wouldn't be able to carry it because of the weight. She told me she wanted to keep it up in her window afterwards and how it reminds her of Seaworld!

Strawberry Season at the Farm

Avery and Callum had fun hand picking their own strawberries at the Temecula Strawberry Farm today. We always enjoyed visiting the farm when we lived in Murrieta, and thought it would be nice to come back and stock up on some big red juicy strawberries. Mmmmmm.....
