Heading to Rutland

I got an e-mail from my sister, Donna. It said, "I can't wait to see you. Bring your muck boots." Hmmm... Makes you wonder what she has planned for me. Muck! Yuck!

I leave here tomorrow afternoon and fly to Boston. I will be at the Heifer International Learning Center at Overlook Farm. It is a wonderful place. I am volunteering at in the Living Gifts area at the Live Nativity there. It is the last time they are doing the Nativity due to people being offended because of the religious theme. Well, Hello! It is CHRISTmas! Don't get me wrong though, I am happy to help with a very worthy cause for an upstanding and outstanding organization. I will be packing my muck boots, lots of warm socks, and work clothes to wear under my warm coat. I can't wait to see Donna. She is much too far away, but thanks to the miracle of flight, I will be there in 4 hours instead of 17. I will take lots of pictures to share.

My class has collected change and we are choosing a gift to give tomorrow. They are excited about doing someting for others at this time of year when the focus is often on getting. I am proud of their collective attitude. Go kids!
