Today was an awesome day of professional learning with APS. The great ideas I've been exposed to will benefit my school kids when August rolls around. Any day is a great day to become better!
I have spent the day doing numerous preliminary drawings for a major project....Got alot done!
I've decided to begin the summer by finishing unfinished business: Art started during my 2013 winter or spring breaks. This is the first piece to be completed:
...With Olivia and her beautiful mother!
Thank you all for your generous donations.
This traveling canvas card raised a total of $407.00 to assist with Olivia's
medical expenses. Please continue to pray for her full, non-recurring recovery
Many blessings to you and thank you again for your support!
Olivia's Traveling Canvas Card has been a HUGE success, reeling in a whopping $400.00 so far. Collections are winding down and plans are to take the Traveling Canvas and its proceeds to its final destination next week. The final destination is with Olivia. Thank you, so much, for your contributions. It's quite moving to see a community pull together to assist one of our kids; even kids you don't know. That speaks mountains about your character and desire to assist those who truly need that assistance.
On Saturday, May 4th, Poole Elementary housed a huge fundraiser for Olivia which included inflatables, food, vendors, an Elvis Presley impersonator, Dr. Wellby amongst other attractions and activities. Over $2000 was raised at Saturday's event and Olivia was in attendance. Additionally, a substantial amount was raised through items being sold and purchased by the students in-house. The whole school and community came together to support this child.
We also supported her healing in prayer.
Olivia's physical update via her mother: Christ is a healer! Olivia's tests from last week resulted in the doctors finding NO cancer anywhere! By the stripes of Christ we are healed. She will continue with chemo for another 2 years to prevent a reoccurrence. This is the normal protocol. Please continue to pray for our family and thank you so much for all of your support, we
continue to need it. - Olivia's Mommy :-)
Please keep Olivia in your prayers and I will keep you informed of her continued healing! For more frequent updates on Olivia, please like the "Team Olivia" page on facebook.
I do what I love and love what I do.
