Sweetest Thing

I have to share this story! After loading Sarah into the car after school today, a mom came over and said, "Is this the famous Sarah we are getting dressed up silly for on Wednesday?"

I said, "It sure is!"

So she continues with this story:

"I have a daughter in Kindergarten. At home she has had a little bowl on the front hall table all year. Whenever someone visits, she asks them to donate to her charity and she holds the bowl out. When asked, she does not know what her charity is...

so when the flier came home last week about Dress Up 2 Cure and Team Sarah, she came running in so happy and telling everyone, I know what my charity is now!!! So she will be bringing in all the little coins that have gone into that bowl for Sarah."

That story really moved me. You just never now the impact our girls are having on the people around them. What a special moment. I can't wait for Wednesday!!!!

If you are not part of Dress Up 2 Cure to help us raise funds for Rett Syndrome research, you need to be! -- chip in the change from your "bowl" in April. And next year, start a team of your own!

Well, our Rett girls make not chatter much, but this is a really fun product for girls that I am excited to be connected with! Chatterchix and Girl Power 2 Cure are now partners!

Our members will be receiving a free pack of cards donated from Chatterchix -- each card represents a girl character or her pet from a different state. On the back of each card, there is info about the card as well as info about the state. If you purchase a starter kit, you get a cool binder to keep your cards, plus a fun map to keep track of your collection and learn the locations of the US States. Great learning tool!

Sarah has enjoyed looking at the cards with her sister. I am thinking about laminating the cards so that Sarah can use them more. What a great girly way to learn about different kinds of girls AND geography. Love this!
