"Big Sister" layout created by
 S:CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald
[Journaling reads: "Kate, this picture is so gently amazing to your Daddy and me! We lit a '#5' candle on Noah’s donut, which is a fun tradition we started just for him. When we look at this 2007 photo of you and Noah, we can see that not only are you physically close by, you’re also watchful of his safety. You are so wonderful!
We love you, big sister. Noah loves you too, even though it’s harder for him to tell you that in words." Photo~ April 2007; Journaling~ June 2009]
"En Route" layout created by
 S:CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald
[Journaling reads: These are my favourite pictures of our boys, taken in the RV by their big sister as we drove along on our way home from camping in Bridgewater, NS. The boys, who were strapped in on the sofa, were just being generally cute and cuddly, playing together. They were having so much fun that Kate, seated across from them in one of the easy chairs, snapped these pictures. I think they are the best ones ever… they make my heart feel warm! Love all four of those kids so much…

And those are our interpretations for the week, for Sketch #14-11. I think our Team really stepped up, especially since I handed them both an UNEXPECTED and tight turn-around time on a rather challenging sketch!

Bravo Team!~ You "rocked it" yet again! Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
