Currently, Hurricane Sandy, and the American Red Cross

Wow... this is my first "Currently" in a while! Head over to Oh Boy 4th Grade to link up to this post!! This past week was difficult for my sister and I. Our Dad and so many of our friends still live on Long Island and other parts of the tri-state area. Waiting for word that everyone was safe and accounted for was tough. Our hometown of West Islip, NY was damaged tremendously and all of the pictures and video that we've seen have been heartbreaking. New Yorkers are strong and resilient people, so we know they will recover. It will just take lots of time, lots of prayers, and lots of donations. Any donations your can make to the American Red Cross will be used for their recovery. Please consider making a dontation. Every little bit helps! My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the Tri-State area!

  1. I just found your blog through Farley's currently and am a new follower! Prayers are with you and your family. I live in VA and we were very lucky to miss the storm and just get a ton of rain.

  3. We found your blog through Currently. It is so tragic to hear about all the devastation caused from Sandy. We hope your family and friends are all safe.

    Thanksgiving Break seems so close, yet so far away! Good luck finding just the right graphics for your polar bear unit :)

  5. HI! I see you guys on pinterest but haven't made it to your blog until today through Farley's Linky Party! My sister and I are teachers too..not at the same school though. My hubby and I are at the same school...adjoining rooms this year! LOL! Sorry to hear about your family in NY. It's difficult to go through. I live in South Florida and we have seen some hurricanes so I understand. Thanks for sharing!

  7. You're sisters and work at the same school? How awesome is that?!

    Praise God your family and friends are okay. I can't believe all the destruction I've seen on the news. I will continue to pray your folks and everyone else in the Tri-State area get the aid they need.
