I looked like this, this morning....then....

I went to the St. Baldrick's event. These two boys are brothers. The little one has been cancer free fro 215 days.

This girl also shaved her head. She is only 10 years old and raised over $4000!

 I also met, Summer. She had never cut her hair. First they got 7 pony tail bundles for LOCKS OF LOVE and then they shaved.

I got to meet Ms. New Mexico too.

Introducing my new bald self.....

After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said: Let me see if I've got this right. You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning. You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self-esteem and personal pride.You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job. You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams. You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card. You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps. You want me to do all this, and then you tell me......I CAN'T PRAY?

In honor of my Dad (who died of cancer in 2012) and to help kids with cancer, on May 2nd, I will be shaving my head!


If you could help me reach my goal of raising $500 for the Saint Baldrick's Foundation, it would be greatly appreciated. Just visit my page and donate whatever you wish.
People have asked me if I am nervous. Really, I'm not. I already have very short hair.
I'm more worried about burning my head this summer. I need a good sun hat.

This is the most snow NM has had since 1931!
My boys are loving it.
We are not prepared for this though. We don't have winter boots, snow pants or good snow mittens.
Andrew has on 2 pairs of pants, sneakers, a coat, scarf and hat. Sam had to got with just his jeans and sneakers.
This is a good trial run for what I'll need to buy for our move to NH.
They both love the snow.

His mittens got caked with snow.
