Something incredibly cute happened this week-end, and I wanted to share it with the world
Miss Kat came up to me and told me that she wanted to sell candy. She had made a sign, selling it for 1¢. So, we did it. We set up a little table, made a bigger sign, and sold salt water taffys We sat outside for about an hour and a half, in the most beautiful fall weather, listening to music and waving at the cars going past. Miss Kat sold approximately 33 pieces of taffy and made $25.31!! What a sweet gig! She went to Target and bought a cool remote control car and then got herself a Happy Meal. I just want to send some love out into the world and say how great it is to see such generous people in the world. Everyone who stopped was so sweet to her and really went out of their ways to make her day. (Even those who didn't stop, I think she brightened their day.)
Oh, I also wanted to update about our church situation. We were still struggling with our local church, but thanks to another mom, we found a new home. It is wonderful. Miss Kat makes the 6th deaf kid! That is more than when we attended the Deaf church back in Utah! The oldest kiddo is 12 or 13 (and they have been attending for at least 6 years) and the other families have really blazed the trail for us. The leaders "get it" and are more than willing to go the extra mile to make us and Miss Kat feel comfortable.
Our life is really great.
