Mr. MacDougall's Cranes

Thank you Sigi and Troop 414. Just gorgeous!

I'm just beside myself tickled by this story: Sigi and her Girl Scout troop 414 made these 1000 beautiful cranes and strung them up on this mobile. They are going to Tim MacDougall, a former teacher of mine who was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago. He is in good spirits while he begins his chemo treatment.
