While I was here today with the two little boys (Dan took the other 6 whitewater rafting) I was addressing envelopes for a concert we will have at our home in mid September. We will have Glen Phillips (from Toad the Wet Sprocket) perform at our home to raise money for Healing Haiti. Last year we had Dan Wilson come to raise money for the Minnesota Down Syndrome Association. We raised $8,000. This year we are needing to raise $27,000! Yikes!
Dan and I separately went to Haiti in March. I went with Feed My Starving Children, and he went with Jeff and Alyn from Healing Haiti. Healing Haiti brings water trucks to the slums of Port au Prince, they help orphans and are building Grace village which will house and school many orphans.
Ironically, while I have been with the two little ones all day and eager to have more bigger people around here, the phone rang and Bobby asked if I would mind if they went to a free Toad the Wet Sprocket concert in Vail, CO on their way home. If they picked me up it would make them over an hour late. Darn! And how could I say "no" to that? I'm throwing a mini pity party here. So, I decided to blog!
Thank you God for the beauty of the mountains. Here was the view as I was addressing the invitations.I don't suspect anyone will join my pity party, huh?
Here are some pictures of more of our trip:

I think I will take the two little guys for a walk.
