I hope the kids learned how fun service can be and the good feeling you have when you do it. This spring there hasn't been as many butterflies around. In fact it had been a few weeks since I had seen a butterfly but this day during most of the day as we volunteered a butterfly would fly by. I just had to think that Wyatt was letting us know how proud he was of us and what we were doing as a family and that we were doing it together and creating some lasting memories. That was a tender mercy for me that day.
The theme of the station we worked at was "Hollywood". They had all sorts of stars and even a red carpet that the runners ran on. I had no idea they did that kind of stuff. It made it that much more fun for us especially since we got to help decorate it.
Handing out the gatroade...it was so good for my kids to have to get out of their comfort zone and speak to and cheer the runners on.:)
|After we got done volunteering we walked to the finish line and watched as some of the Ironmen finished. Quite amazing! So fun to be a part of. Look forward to helping out next year.|
