Today I share a couple of photos that our friend and Soul photographer Sarah Mattingly took while we were working at the NTSAD conference. They show me with two of the children and I am so thankful to have a record of me with my pals George and William. I feel like the families have become friends and it was so wonderful to have time with them again this year, I hope to see them all again in two years.

We are set to print the newsletter this week and I am excited to share all the names of those who have been so helpful. Be sure to check out the thank you section as so many people have been so very generous. We are working to connect with a number more photographers to enlist their help so we hope that the list of shooters will be even longer next year. We have had incredible help from high school girls and I want to mention Brenna, Amanda, Joey, and Jennifer for all their help. So many of my good friends have stepped up to make trifolds this past week and specifically Sidni and Diane got right on it and we now have a lovely selection for our families.

I had the opportunity to model for Pinky's Passion for a Cure to raise funds for Parkinson's research. What fun that was last Friday to arrive at the Madison House and have half the models be residence of this assisted living home. It was just so much fun to be modeling clothes from so many eras with women from many eras. Lulu had modeled the weekend before while I was at the cabin and she said she had a wonderful time also. Here is a snap of me in the flapper era outfit. In these economic times its important to keep funding flowing for research, so I am glad to be of some small help and to honor my friend Lise who lives so gracefully with Parkinson's.

I end today's missives with a request for prayers for my friend Emily. The dynamic red head is headed back for treatment as her cancer has resurfaced. Please keep this lovely child in your prayers as she steps back into the medical whirlwind. In love and peace, Lynette
