You know what happens when you combine an incredibly busy person with a tendency to go to bed early?
Yeah, a very boring blog. Sorry about that. And thanks to all of you who have been checking in!
I bring you today a slightly lackluster Wednesday in Numbers. Nothing is quite as fantastic as the farm for cuteness and fun, and an arcade and activity park just doesn’t hold a candle to it. But i’ll do my best.

On a slightly camp-related note:
Thanks to working at camp, I’ve met some of the most amazing families. There are a few families in particular (you know who you are!!) that hold very special places in my heart. I love hearing good news from them, and try to help them in any way I can when things get rough. Through one family, I’ve met a few other local families. One of these families is going through a difficult time right now: their 6-year-old son Sammy was just diagnosed with Leukemia.
Sammy’s mom Phyllis is a rabbi, a blogger, and an amazing mom. She’s started a photo project called Superheroes for Sam. Hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people are taking photos of themselves as a superhero, or with a superhero symbol, much like this:
While I don’t know if any of you will participate, I had to get it out there… one good turn deserves another, and I can only hope that even thinking positively about sweet Sammy will help him heal faster. So, if you’d like to participate in the Superheroes for Sam project, the information is here on their blog. It only takes a minute!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
