Check out our video . . . and consider helping us get some books to NZ!

With less than 4 weeks to go until God's great adventure for us begins, we are officially in "get-as-much-done-as-quickly-as-possible" mode!  We just taped and sent a video of our family to St. Thomas More for the parish to use as an introduction for us, and also to help them fundraise for the youth group budget.  I tried getting the video up on our blog but the main page cuts off half of the video window . . . so yeah I'm still working on that.  In the meantime you can just watch it here:  Sealy Family Intro Movie

One bit of help we need in these next weeks.  I recently asked Danielle and Kerstin the question "Is there anything that you wish you had at St. Thomas More that you currently don't have?"  The response: Books.  Apparently the teens are hungry for good spiritual reading!  We hope to bring down a decent library with us, but we can't cover all the basics!  If you're interested in helping out, I'll be putting a list of 20 or so books up here by next week that we want to add to the parish library - let us know if you'd like to maybe send one or two down to the parish ahead of us!
