My Spring Break in Pictures

This is the closest thing I got to a picture of the whole group. 

Not pictured are, Mike & Ann (who were catching a red-eye) and Capt. Scotty, who was behind the camera. We had a pretty sweet entourage...

Grandma & Bill.
My mum & dad.
All Dad's siblings and their spouses.
3 specially selected (favorite) grandkids.

We cruised through the East Caribbean and visited some seriously beautiful places. 
Princess Cays, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. John, & Grand Turk

We swam.

We sailed.

We snorkeled.

I was one happy girl. 

A million thank you's to these two:

and these two:

for making it happen. 
I felt so lucky to be able to go. 
Thanks for the early birthday/graduation present guys..

What a week!
Hope everyone else had a good little getaway!

Who is Joseph Kony?

I can't fall asleep without thinking of these kids. 
There is a lot of argument about whether or not this organization has real integrity or if it's a whole lot of hooplah and a way to get rich quick playing off of people's emotions. 
Who really cares?
This is a situation people need to know about. 
I think raising the global awareness can do nothing but good. I'm annoyed by those cynical intellectuals out there who choose to jump into conversation and threads only to say that it's silly and naive to get behind this organization because it's flawed. 
It's one thing to propose a plan of your own,
 but there is nothing productive about tearing down 
and picking apart someone's honest effort to make a positive
change in the world. 
I was so moved by this. 
It really opened my eyes and made me think outside myself.
So yeah, it probably won't solve the problem over night
But it made a world of difference to me.
