(Written by Susanna and Lauren Smile)

For over a year, we wanted to go to the Vision Forum Father and Daughter Retreat with Daddy, Bethany, and Hannah. In order to do that, we did four fundraisers last fall: flower bulbs (from Dutch Mill Bulbs), home made candies, Confederate Candles, and our family’s CDs.

Thank you, to all who supported us (and those who happened to be here on baking day and volunteered to help with the project Smile). It was well worth all the work and time. We came away from the weekend very encouraged, and we highly recommend it to all of you fathers and daughters. (Go to www.visionforum.com to sign up for 2013!)

Here are some pictures of the whole process. Smile
