Trip to Jackson, Mother's Day, and Reach!

I know it's been a minute since I've posted, but I'm back from my trip to Jackson, and I had a lovely time. I have pictures that I took, and I'll post them when I can find my camera cord, but Karmen is getting so tall, and Danyelle is becoming quite the cheerleader....she's amazing, if I do say so myself!

My family really is the coolest, and I'm glad I got a chance to spend the day with my Mom, and my Grandmother!

Mother's Day started off with breakfast cooked by my Mom, sorry Mom, and then we all went to church. Afterwards, we went to Sonny's Bar-B-Que, and it was delicious! It was a loud, fun time...with a 13 person party!

On the Reach! front:
Things are progressing quite smoothly...well, that is if you don't count my freak-outs about the funding...and the simple logistics of 'how do you run/start/fund a non-profit...' Other than that, things are going well. My team and I are working on a grant app now. Did I mention it was a federal grant? Did I mention I'm quite sure I'll have my doctoral thesis completed whilst writing this grant??? It's a DOOZIE!!!

I feel so unprepared, under qualified, and pretty much useless in this process. Thankfully, I'm meeting with a lady in our district today, and she's hopefully going to put my mind at ease....Lord knows I need it!

I'll be back later to post pics from the weekend! And, in the next couple of weeks, I'll need your help voting for my grant application to win the funding...I'll keep you posted on those details though!
