So my friend, Maureen, lived in New Orleans (her hometown) during Hurricane Katrina. Maureen is a naturally very giving person, but especially to the state of Louisiana when needed. As I’m sure many of you know, Baton Rouge has had a tough time lately due to flooding. 21″ of rain fell steadily in less than 24 hours. You can read about it here: Louisiana – The Skimm
Last night, instead of watching Bachelor In Paradise, I babysat for my some of my favorite 9 & 10 year-olds. It quickly turned into a sleepover, but instead of playing on their iPads, etc. they opted to do something kind for others. #Pimpinjoy, if you will. Teddy Bears made out of towels.
One of Maureen’s friends bought all the towels at Target & TJ Maxx, then promptly gave half to Maureen to assemble. With my supervision, Abby, Bridget, Ella, & Jadyn made a bajillion teddy bears. Yes, bajillion is a word. Maureen’s friend will be delivering the bears this weekend.

Ella was a bear making machine, while it took the rest of us a bit longer to get it. I blame our perfectionism. Checkout the girls’ masterpieces:
