Virtual Tour

(FROM JENN)

We estimate that we had about 300 people visit including the Mayor of mission, a freelance photographer from the Mission Record and about a dozen former saints and saints foster dogs. Also, I know of at least one person who came Saturday and returned again Sunday with some more of her friends so I guess people liked it :). Sunday ended on a great note when a couple donated $600. Yippy!!!

So for those who could not join us and even for those who could, here are some pics I picked from this special but exhausting weekend….

This is the driveway (unfortunately this is NOT a pic from the weekend because there are now some pretty flowers in front of the SAINTS sign)

Griffin decided to show a house full of visitors his mystical diarrhea circle … around the room, even on the beds … and even after cleaning and mass amounts of bleach managed to linger in the air for the rest of the day 🙁 Esther is sitting on the floor waiting for some more cookie … it took a lot this weekend to keep her quiet
