Special Days: Picnics, church, games, scripture and more...oh my
You got accepted into the Dallas Zoo Volunteer Youth Program! You are so excited and wiggin out over it. You have wanted into this program for 2 years and were always too young. Now you are the right age, home schooled and we got all the kinks worked out so you can participate for the school year. This is perfect for you since you want to open an animal rescue when you are older .
1. Bible Bee 2012:OK we started this off with great gumption. Full of excitement and ready to tackle it all. Then we got the vesres-27 of them. Then we saw how long they were-VERY ad our excitement dwindled. The Bible Bee was on 2 Timothy and that part was awesome. We loved 2 Timothy, but we did horrible on the actually study of scripture part. WE talked about them, but they were so long we did not put the work into memorizing them and putting them in our heart like we had planned to do together. We faltered and let life take over. We did promise each other though to keep working at them on a slower pace and we have been. We started over on 2 Timothy and are really digging in one time per week instead of 5. Not the pace we wanted, but for now we are ok with it.
2. Mothers Day! You always plan these really great Mother's Day gifts for me. Homemade cards, fix me breakfast, take extra care of me, make me a homemade gift, draw me picture, help out around the house. How can I not adore Mother's Day with you around? It would be impossible. It's one of my favorite times. Plus, you always like to hear about you being born.
3. Centerpoint Family Picnic: Come one egg toss, pool party, great food, great friends, water slides, hay rides, fishing...how can it not make our list? We love the picnic, look forward to it and plan around it every year. You normally spend 90% of your time in the pools, but you like doing the three-legged run with me and you like watching Drake and I do the egg toss, since I always come out gooey. It's always a great time for us together and you get your mommy/daughter time when you leave the water.
