I started out adding some of these photos to another spread but woke up one day and decided they needed a special page of their own. This came together really quickly after that. An event, coordinating photos and a Project Life kit that suits pretty much anything... can't beat that combo!
My daughter is about to embark on an adventure. She's part of a school trip going to Cambodia for the school holidays and one day they're making houses in a village. Hence the hammering practice and sore arm muscles! These houses are basically one room on poles but to the families who they are for, mean the world. They will have been saving for years. They also get to visit several orphanages which she's very excited about. There they are entertaining the children, giving gifts of precious supplies and doing some painting maintenance. They will also see some of Cambodia's very special tourist attractions and stop over in Singapore on the way home for a very different experience.
A piece of me will miss her so much and be worried about her, but I also know she'll gain so much from this experience.
