The Help Averi (and her family) Website

Many people have offered to help us during this recent speed bump in our lives and up until now I haven't really known what to ask for.  Now that we have gotten our feet wet, I think I might drown if I don't start accepting the offers.  I decided to set up a website where friends can sign up to help us out with things that we are need of.

I have to admit, it feels really weird to ask so blatantly for help, but I wouldn't be doing it unless we really needed it.  Hopefully using the website will help people feel less obligated than if I asked them in person and people won't get bugged by me all the time. :)
(This picture is here solely to lure you into wanting to help us...whahaha.)

How to access the website:
1 - Go to calendar.google.com

2 - Log in using:   Email: helpaveri     password: loveaveri

3 - A weekly agenda will show up.  Press the arrows at the top left to move from week to week.  The days are labeled with times that we would appreciate some help if people are willing to give it. :)  I know the times to watch Kaili are long but we are flexible.  If you can watch her part of the time please indicate it and I will contact you to work out the details.

How to sign up for a slot:
1 - Click on the time slot you would like to fill

2 - When the bubble appears click "edit event details"

3 - At the top of the page, next to the activity you are signing up for, write your name and a form of contact.
            Ex.: Next to "Watch Kaili - " I would add "Tiffany 614-949-9205"

4 - Click "save"

5 - When the bubble appears, click "only this instance"

6 - I will check the calendar daily and contact people to work out final details.  Thank you so much!

We will try this out for next week and see how it works.  I am so grateful for all the continued support we receive every day.  Thank you for helping us out and for being our family away from family!

Hey guys - "batch comment": I loved Averi's dancing, the Halloween shots (SO CUTE) and (as always) reading the accounts. You're right - this is a crazy-go-nuts amount of stuff for a baby girl to have to go through. But you other 3 Fishers are doing a SPECTAC job, and Averi's still smiling each day. Thanks for watching our blog despite everything going on over there. We WISH we could have Kaili over here to play with the boys and give you the break. Sigh... so far away.

You could also add on there that you want more subway cards...you may get a flood of them in. I know I should be sending you them already. :)

I wish I lived there. I would love to help you guys. I think the website sounds like a great idea.

Thinking and praying for you always. Love you lots and miss you too!

If your mom ever can't make it, just ask me and I will be more than happy to come and stay with ya'll for a week to help out. Kaili and Brooklyn would have so much fun together! And Brooklyn is always asking if we can go visit cousins.

I wish I could be closer to help out. I hate not being there for you. My love and thoughts are flying over the ocean even though I can't.

I am going to print this off so I can follow it step by step. I haven't been able to get on the computer for the past week and I have missed so much.
