I spy-cribs!

Curling up to sleep at night in my nice, safe bed is one of my favorite things to do. When I found out one of our partner agencies needs cribs that are up to code for some families that do not have a place for their babies to sleep, I felt compelled to help. After checking the codes, I cleaned off one that has been stored for the past 2 years, since my daughter had outgrown it. I am looking forward to tomorrow when a team will deliver it.
