Can volunteering make you healthier?

Check out a new study by Volunteer Match to see : )

And if you read the article and want to volunteer, let me know! I will have volunteer orientation for Memphians on June 1st at 6pm and June 5th at 9am. Just thought I'd pass along some good information!

Help Youth Villages win a ballpark makeover!

'Building Diamonds and Dreams' is a program where youth baseball fields all over America will be selected for a complete makeover, courtesy of Chevy and their partner, The Scotts Company (The Scotts Company is the Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball). A field makeover is a home run for the kids and our communities.

The program is simple. Go online to and enter 38002 as the zip code at the top of the page. When you do, the Youth Villages' Dogwood Campus in Arlington, TN will be entered for a chance at a ballpark makeover. You can increase the chances of the kids being selected by entering your information everyday. You could also win a new Chevy car, truck or crossover.

The 'Building Diamonds and Dreams' program ends July 16th.

update coming soon

Since my last baby update blog, Jon has started using his high chair, his jumparoo, his teething toys (yes...we think he's teething), and he's been to the forum for graduation and to Disney World to celebrate graduation. Whew! I will post a real update soon, but in the meantime, here is a picture of sweet baby Jon from yesterday.
