Wonder-Full Summer.....

      It's been so long since I've been in this space but, for good reason. I have been having so much fun spending time with all these children. The highlight of this job is my ability to work with kids. I just recently got an assistant so I am finally able to have the weekend off to spend with my family! I am sacrificing a lot for this. We've decided to wait to buy a home, and to have another baby just so I can have this job. I feel like I can make a difference here. In the past, this place has had a really bad reputation and I am determined to make that change! I feel like I need to help others who are less fortunate than I am so I feel that the small sacrifices I'm making will be worth it in the end. We have been working with the Food Bank to bring a project called Kid's Cafe to the community to help feed the lower income children in our area. At the beginning of this project, a lot of these children didn't even know what some basic vegetables were let alone, never tried them! Now they're eating them.
       We have made many friends and have had so much fun just giving these kids some time and attention.

We played with silks.

We gave "horsie rides",

And we rode them too!

Planted flowers to make a fairy garden,

It was a litte tough talking these kids into touching dirt but once they did, they got really into it. 

We searched for bugs and helped tend the flower garden,

We got to go in a bike ride with the mayor!!!

We made bubbles,

We walked for good causes!

And made wishes along the way,

We laughed ,
And danced in the rain,

We made bird feeders,
And fed the birds.

We have had so much fun. And that was just a few of the things we did!
