The 3 Beauties :-)

How wonderful it was to have Dana, Eva and Emilio here with us!

Dana and I were college students together. What I remember most is that we loved our lit classes, loved our popcorn and study times, loved to go running together and just loved each other's company. It was so fun to re-unite after all these years later and basically find that we still love all of these things, except we have books to read now instead of lit classes and I don't like running any more!

Dana, a writing specialist, spent time with the teachers at Living Water Children's Center, helping them with ideas on how to teach writing and literacy more effectively. Eva and Emilio assisted in the classroom of the youngest students. We also had beautiful adventures together in Zanzibar and the Ngorongoro Crater.

I felt sad when they left. I treasure our friendship.

Now I smile every time I enter my once disastrous pantry. Dana organized it into gorgeous shape, leaving her pretty handwriting to name all my storage tins. Thank you, Ms D! I like the feel of your touch on our home.

PS Dana is blogging about the adventure of living under one roof with her 2 young people and their 85 year old grandpa.

What a wonderful visit from Dana and kids. Thanks for organizing the pantry for Lisa. We all could use that.

I am so happy you got to help out at the school and go to the crater.

I know it will be hard to adjust to being back home now.
