Extreme Makeover




I am was so excited today to find out that a local family has been picked for this show! Their oldest son is in Emma's class, and they are just the nicest family. They were whisked off to Disney today, and their house will be torn down tomorrow. Next Friday, we will all be gathered around yelling "Move That Bus!"

I have mentioned before that I love this town. And I will say it again. Back in August, ABC came to 'scout' out the house and neighborhood. The family had not been chosen, they were just looking at several possible families. It didn't matter that they hadn't even been chosen yet, a couple of thousand of us showed up that day, including our entire highschool cheerleading squad. The producers said they had never seen anything like it.

You really can't beat a small town... everyone knows everyone, and you know they would all be there for you if anything happened.

This is so cool! My friend is also a 38 year old Babson alum, who lives in Natick. She just left for Africa yesterday, so I don't know if she'll be home when the show airs, but I'll have to direct her attention to the story if you keep the details posted here. My brother and his wife are in Peabody so I'll have to tell them to watch as well.

I love the small town/big heart of New England!

God Bless,
Jane

They just did one in my town (in RI) - the family came home this past Monday. It was amazing to see how many people turned out to help, even in the snow.
