My Mom and Gisele Veilleux run a dog rescue called The Dog Liberator that saves death row dogs throughout the Southeast. Gisele, the founder of the rescue, needed some serious help. She has been so busy launching this rescue, that she found herself in a pickle. So while she was away on vacation, I executed my plan!

First, I reorganized her kitchen and bathroom, then I helped her reorganize and clean her garage. Just that task produced at least 24 bags of unwanted items that were tossed to the curb for garbage pickup. A van load of other items, however, were donated to New Tribes Mission.

Later, I helped 7 year-old Sarah go through her closet, drawers, and sort through her unwanted toys, etc. That produced another 6 bags of items to be donated.

Sarah was very proud of her clean and organized room!

Once we were on a roll, I then did every stitch of laundry in the house! Sarah and I folded, and put it all away neatly.

When Gisele returned, she thought she was in the wrong house!

All in all, I had a blast! Sarah and I jogged, made cookies, learned the dances to VBS songs, watched princess movies, played Monopoly, read fairy tales, made hats, made paper fortune tellers, played Wii, had staring contests, an “indoor” picnic, painted nails, and read some of a children’s Bible. As a matter of fact, we were so busy that Sarah didn’t watch television for 4 days in a row! Here are some videos of Sarah and I learning the dances to some VBS songs, but what she enjoyed the most was our tea party complete with sugar cookies!

  1. Caitlin you are amazing. I understand that Ozzie would sleep on your pillow constantly and you had to move him off the couch! Thanks for everything! Sarah loved every minute of it and she wants me to leave again soon! Gisele

  2. Our family has always joked that Caitlin was born with a pen and paper in her hand, making a To-Do list. When she was a little girl, she would organize her younger brother's room for fun. How appropriate that she has found a way to use this God-given talent to help others and to finance her life goal of being a missionary. Allow me a "proud mother" moment! ~ Holly

  3. The genuine look on Sarah's face behind the pile of laundry reminded me of an "Our Gang" short! Great job Caitlin and Sarah; a proud Mom moment indeed!
