To recap: Pat in IL got this ball rolling when a Navy Ombudsman asked if any Navy moms could help a Navy wife in western NC who is expecting a baby on July 4th. We will PM you the expectant mom's address upon request.
Update on Monday 4/30:
Quote from our expectant mom - "You have no idea how much this means to me! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!"
She lives about an hour and a half from any military resources. Also she has two other little girls. She is an ex-Marine. She is a very nice young woman and a pleasure to talk to. She asked Pat, "Why did you all think to do this?" Pat told her, "Beause we are all Navy Family."
Ladies, I want you to know that you are making a difference in this young woman's life! NAVY MOMS ROCK!!!!!
I'll take June 25th unless someone thinks that is too late.
Her due date is July 4, so Pat was thinking that the week of June 18th or so would be good to ensure things get there in time - I'll put your name in for then and you mail after that whenever you're ready! :)
Works for me.
I'll send the week of May 28th.
Thanks for putting me in mid June. I have about 8 burp cloths ready to go and I just started a strip quilt.
Navy appointee dinner...daughter's wedding...and you're sewing and making a quilt?? I'm in awe of you, Paymaster!
I'll mail the week of May 7th
Marcy and Pat L. Thanks for doing all this work to organize this! You guys are great!!
Isn't this fun? I love how we're coming together!
Marcy....Yes, that's me the multi-tasker:
Like I don't have enough to do, I just said I would make a stripe quilt for a new Navy baby. Silly me, like I don't have enough to do between now and the end of June.
1 leave at the end of the month for son's graduation from War College
2 Hosting dinner for Naval Academy appointee's for the class of 2016
3. Need to finish dinner napkins for gift for daughters wedding shower gift
4 Daughters wedding two weeks after USNA dinner.
Now I am going back into my sewing room to work on the stripe quilt. BTW I have a full time job with a 40 minute commute each way. I don't watch much TV, no small children at home nor do I require alot of sleep.
At least I found a dress and shoe's to wear for the wedding!
Wow!! is all I have to say Paymaster!
I have my package ready... have some onsies and diaper wipes and a blanket... also tucked in some little items for the big sisters! Will be sending it off May 11th...
