Today marks the beginning of my last spring break in life and I couldn’t be more excited. Instead of going to a beach somewhere, I chose to spend my break volunteering somewhere in the country to better the lives of those in need. The past few months have been spent preparing and planning for this day and I’m so happy that it’s finally here. In a few hours I’ll be heading off to Fort Campbell, KY to participate in an art program for little kiddos on the military base. I love kids and can’t wait to meet them and spend the week having awesome Dr. Seuss-ian fun!
My wonderful group that I’ll be going with decided on the theme of “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” for the week and each day will be a different destination for the kids to have fun with. For instance, Dino Day is on Tuesday so we’ll be traveling back to the prehistoric times with T-Rex tag and archaeological digs. The entire week will be filled with this kind of awesome fun.
I’m so thrilled to have an entire week to spend getting to know some spectacular, selfless humans who will be on this trip with me. It’s people like them who the world needs more of. I don’t know everyone very well yet but can already tell that they’ll become my best friends by the time this trip is over.
So, here’s to a week full of laughter, games and love!
