  2. What a fun list. It's quite inspiring. I hope you make it through all the items on your list.

  3. I'm finally catching up on my blog reading. I love Jim Weiss but haven't gotten anything new in years for the kids. I will have to look into some more and dig out the ones we have. The older kids have heard them but the littles haven't. How very fun!
