Wen the Knitter dropped by tonight and got me chatting, which was fun - she reminded me (without actually reminding me) that I hadn't posted in a long long time. So here we are! I have to mention that about 90% of the items below are sitting boxed and shrink-wrapped at my front door. They are going to Iqaluit this weekend to be distributed through a contact there at the four schools. I know what you're thinking: 50 pounds between 4 schools? I'm thinking we might do another box soon.
In between: I think we are sending a box up in early May that will go Ottawa to Iqaluit and Iqaluit to Cambridge Bay - it will be kind of an intro box to see if there is any interest in a little community partnership.
Have I mentioned that we have doctors going up to Iqaluit in June? Please keep that in the back of your mind - how about a deadline of June 1st? Please don't worry if you can't make that deadline - we'll do something for September as well.
If I haven't said it lately, you guys are the absolute best. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you all, and thank my lucky stars that we found each-other.
