AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A well WILL be built!! A whole village of people WILL have access to clean water!!

A special thank you to today's donors...Jessica Johnston-Myers, Tracy Dorathy, Mary Anna Walker and Todd Henderson :o) You guys made it happen!

We are just a bit excited at our house :o) Imagine that! Haha! The girls went NUTS when I told them that we have raised enough to provide water to a whole village in Africa.

I had the girls make these signs before I told them the good news. They had no idea what "funded" meant :o) I had to choose my words carefully :o) It is hard keeping a secret in a house full of girls!

I took them outside and sit them on their little blue picnic table and said, "Girls, I have good news. The Friends of Fansoe well fund has raised enough money to pay for a well in Africa." This was their initial reaction...

Followed by lots of clapping...

After the cheering and dancing, Hillary Ashton said, "Oh mommy, I am so happy. Can we build some more wells?" Gotta love that girl!

Of course, Hillary Ashton wanted to see the "blue line all filled up" on the Charity: Water website. She checks that website every night :o)
