Here is a link to my personal fundraising webpage for Relay for Life. You may donate here and send me an email if it is for sponsorship of luminaries.

My Johnston County Relay for Life team is asking for sponsors. All sponsors are recognized with their names on the T-shirt that is a part of the Relay for Life Experience for the year that they sponsor. The T-shirt is a wonderful advertisement as every participant gets one and additional shirts are sold. To be a sponsor you contact a Relay for Life participant (me) and fill out the sponsorship form and pay your amount. You may chose between the following sponsorships…Bronze – $300 or more; Silver – $600 or more; Gold – $1,000 or more, Platinum – $1,500 or more; Platinum Plus – $2,500 or more.  Premier$5,000   Sponsors are at top back of shirt.  Sleeves are $7,500.   The larger the sponsorship, the larger the print!

 You may also chose to buy luminaries in honor or in memory of someone who has had or has cancer. They are $10.00 each and will circle the Relay for Life path surrounding the lake at JCC.

 The Johnston County Unit of the American Cancer Society will hold its 24-hour “Relay for Life” fund raising event beginning at 2 PM on Friday, June 1st and continuing through 2 PM Saturday, June 2nd 2007 on the back campus of Johnston Community College.  The first and last laps of the event are dedicated to cancer survivors who are honored in a special opening ceremony at the stage area at 6 PM on Friday night.  Luminaries may be purchased in honor or memory of loved ones and will be lit Friday evening at dusk in a special luminaria service you will not want to miss!  Entertainment will be ongoing throughout the event at the stage area so bring your lawn chairs!  Bring your tent & sleeping bag and stay all night if you’d like!  The closing lap and ceremony will begin at 1:00 PM Saturday and is also dedicated to survivors. It’s a community event to help find a cure for cancer and we do need your support!!  Each lap walked is a “Lap of Love” in honor or memory of someone.

Our county goal this year is $525,000! If you would like to support Relay for Life contact me by commenting  on this post and I will get back to you with what to do!  Sincerely, Julie Stewart

Hi friends and family,

When I first heard this version of one of my favorite songs I had no clue who sang it. Now I do and it is a wonderful video tribute to a talent that has passed on. Watch the whole video and you will understand. Such a simple beautiful tribute to a person of much talent. The instrument he is playing is a ukelele.

Thank you Lori Kilmer for posting this!

Drum Circles are fun…

Drum Circles have been a subject of conversation in Kindermusik classes recently with all the drum playing we have enjoyed in Family Time, Village and Our Time classes. I enjoyed a drum circle a couple of years ago hosted by our local Kindermusik Educators group and facilitated by the Raleigh Drum Circle. The information to attend the public drum circle events is the 3rd Monday of every month from 7pm -9pm at Lake Johnson Park, 4601 Avent Ferry Road, Raleigh, NC. Admission is $3.00 per person. You may bring your own drum or they have some drums and other percussion instruments for borrowing. Here is a clip of the Asheville Drum Circle to give you an idea…

The Elephant Song … or is it? Our Time Families will especially like this.

When you give your child musical experiences just imagine what that might turn into… Watch this video of the latest performance of the cast of London’s Palladium production of The Sound of Music singing Do a Dear…

Dad’s and Mom’s read this! What Do You Do All Day?

February 19, 2007 at 12:17 am | Posted in and more!, Blogroll, Parenting, Ramblings | Leave a comment

I am spending Sunday afternoon catching up at the studio…my house is empty as my husband had to make a Sunday trip to the office, my younger daughter is over at a friends house and has a meeting at church mid afternoon so this was a good time to tend to business. I often think of things I would like to share with parents that class time doesn’t seem to be the place…so our blog is a good place to share. The following tale is food for thought! 

 What Do You Do All Day?

…A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.

As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went.

He looked at her bewildered and asked, “What Happened here today?” She again smiled and answered, “You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?” “Yes,” was his incredulous reply.  She answered, “Well, today I didn’t do it.”…

This is not to say your situation is like this! I just wanted to share that perception is not always reality! Have a Happy Sunday afternoon!  Miss Julie
