1,700 Books for Special Education

August 12, 2012

Saturday, August 11th was a great day, we held our third annual Court’s Kids Big Sort. We sorted and packed 1,700 books to go out to special education programs across the country. To those of you on our list, be patient, the books are coming!

The Final Count!

The sorting days are always so fun, we make new friends and catch up with long time friends. We pour through boxes of books, laughing, smiling, remembering…Everyone always finds at least one book that takes them instantly back to a place in their childhood where they were enthralled by a story, happy, and loved. I’ve done several of these now and seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter never gets old.

Courtney would have loved the book sorts, I know she would…every time we sort the sun comes out and warms our garage, touches the tables and brightens the smiles of our volunteers. The mood is happy and beautiful and she is there.

Little by little,

Kiki
