Steven Curtis Chapman

I know that this is all over the internet. It's just simply sad and tragic. That poor boy. The family. I can't imagine the grief that this entire family is feeling.

Here's a little blip about it, and a song from SCC himself.


NASHVILLE, TN...5/21/08... At approximately 5pm on the afternoon of Wednesday May 21st, Maria Sue Chapman, 5 years old and the youngest daughter to Steven and Mary Beth Chapman was struck in the driveway of the Chapman home in Franklin, TN. Maria was rushed to Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital in Nashville, transported by LifeFlight, but died of her injuries there. Maria is one of the close knit family’s six children and one of their three adopted daughters.

More than five years ago, Chapman and his wife MaryBeth founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. The ministry’s goal is to help families reduce the financial barrier of adoption, and has provided grants to over 1700 families wishing to adopt orphans from around the world. Chapman is a five-time GRAMMY ® winner and 54-time Dove Award winning artist who has sold over 10 million albums and garnered 44 No. 1 singles."

I can't figure out how to embed YouTube stuff, so I'll post that song later!

Ok, I think I got it now :)

It's been a while!

First, I found a great blog and she's offering some blog candy!! Go check her out to see what's up for grabs! :D She's a fun scrapbooker!!

We spent Mother's Day weekend in Ottawa, and that was fun. I got my hair cut.

I love it!! It's fresh and fun. It also salvaged my last haircut which I didn't enjoy at all. While in Ottawa we took our last visit to the Hershey Factory. It is closing and leaving the country as of December. Sad really. So we're planning a Hershey PA trip in August! :D

Things are rolling along nicely at the Beaudry household... :D
