This past week has been so wonderful!  Having Easter vacation has given me the opportunity to go shopping with my mom and grandma, draw a little bit, and knit a LOT.  I've been knitting some washcloths for a knitting swap on Ravelry.  They are going to a women's home in Massachusetts, where women with substance abuse pasts recover, I believe.  It has been fun making them.  I did a couple with a cable owl in the center, and I think I'm going to try some that are in the shape of a leaf!

The real highlight of my week was when I found out I had a new Compassion correspondent child!

His name is Ricky, and he is going to be 15 in June.  He lives in the Dominican Republic with his father.  I am so excited to get to know him!  Even though I can't be his financial sponsor, it is so cool to be able to encourage him through letter writing.  And, now with Lizzie's new post on letter writing, I should be all set with topics and ideas to write him about.  Thanks Lizzie, for all the great ideas.  I would be a little lost on what to write to a teen boy at first, if it wasn't for your great posts :)

If you would like to sponsor a child through Compassion, just let me know!  I'm still praying that Aylin will get sponsored before Compassion Sunday, on April 21.
