50 / 50 project

Hello Friends! Thanks to everyone for their continued support on this memorable project. Lucy is making friends across the country, finding out that we are all more connected to each other than one would first think. This is currently what our map looks like. We are still looking for connections in: Kansas, Delaware, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Vermont and Georgia. All other states are in the works but could thing could change at any moment. Lucy is learning all sorts of life lessons through this project including one of being stood up, but she easily brushes it off and then we are out to look for another lead. So if you or someone you know who might be willing to help out in any of the unmarked states, please contact us via the contact link above or in the comments below.

We are gathering all of our info, stories and facts in one place and looking forward to sharing the final project with everyone!

::UPDATE:: (Nov 7th) We are SO close, most States are in the works but we have yet to find people for: Kansas, Delaware, Wisconsin, Georgia and So. Carolina. THANKS for everyone’s  response and enthusiasm on this project, we appreciate all your reposting, comments and connections. ::

Lucy is working on  a rather ambitious project, we are finishing up our lesson on The States and Capitols and thought it would be awesome to meet a person from ALL 50 states! This was the first we started on ‘meeting’ our way through the country and learning about each state from a personal perspective, other than from books or sites. She already has learned so many interesting facts, heard some hilarious personal stories and listened to peoples’ family history and connection to each state. AND has met some really amazing people!! I can see that there is an excitement and a newfound love of where she lives and this will be a project she will remember forever. She is really excited about this adventure, although it sometimes doesn’t translate well via video chat- she is also learning how to break the ice quickly with these new acquaintances.

As you can see we are making our mark on the map. I was hoping with a little help from you and the power of the internet, we can make this come true. The star-less states are where we need kind folks for 10 minutes of their time via video chat with Lucy to answer some simple questions about their state. If you or anyone you know might be willing to help this come into fruition please contact me at: deshaigh{at}gmail{dot}com for more info and please feel free to share this!

If all things go well, this is what our map will look like after the weekend! I will keep this map up to date as things change and can’t wait to share the final results with everyone!




happy weekend // connection

morning | workhouseblogI am starting to pick up my camera more and more these days, it’s nice to feel connected to it again. I hope you all have a lovely weekend and are able to connect with some thing that has meaning to you, even if it is just for a moment. I will be back Monday with a few new series and hopefully feeling fresh and renewed, this week has been busy.

it really doesn’t get much better than this. lucy was in her first real production. the camp was everyday for 2 weeks and on the last day they performed a short play, ‘snow drop’, in a real theatre, on a real stage, with costumes, lighting and all! lucy had to audition and was selected for two roles: the huntsman and dwarf #1. she had a blast and has a newfound love for acting!
