It is a gorgeous Sunday afternoon here in Middle Tn - The windows are open and the boys are at a friends playing for the day. It has been an incredible weekend. Yesterday Tariku was blessed beyond measure with the opportunity to spend the day at Polka Dots and Happy Thoughts raising awareness and money for Well on our way - Water for my sisters! The owners are an amazing couple Stacey and Chris Chatman - Stacey was actually Tariku's kindergarten teacher last year and she and I walked a journey together with him. This year she is walking a new journey and I am so thankful that Tariku is able to be a small part of it! Her fabulous husband picked Tariku from Teddy's soccer game and off they went! Tariku spent all day at the store sharing his story and helping his friends Ms. Stacey and Mr. Chris and at the end of the day he had raised just over $800.00!!! He could not have been prouder!! He also had so many friends from school stop in and see him and share their allowance with him. Here is a glimpse into his day! Many many thanks to all that came out and supported him! We could not walk this journey without you!
