I can hardly believe it!! How did this happen!! It's also me who distinctly remembers that my birthday was last year - it can't possibly be again! But time goes on and I've gotten a year older. (I've actually been telling people that I'm turning fifteen because I don't act my age and I don't want to!)
And, sadly, this is the last time that I can sing that great song from The Sound of Music. So, for the last time....
'I am seventeen, going on eighteen....'
|Our entire group! (TeenPact is amazing, by the way....)|
|Here's where all the shoe boxes went from the processing center! Really neat!|
|My job was to make sure the 'filler boxes' were full. Sometimes, the boxes weren't full enough, so they stuck these things in to make the box better for the child.|
|Some of the boxes with the un-processed shoe boxes inside!|
|This lady found the shoe box she personally sent to Operation Christmas Child! Is that neat or what?!|

|Awesome TeenPact friends!|
|At the end, after we'd worked for about four hours. Loads of fun!|
