Today, my dad’s band played at a nearby elementary school. A few months ago, the conductor asked if Mark would help with the piece, “What’s Up at the Symphony.” Mark recruited Megan to help him.
Mark was dressed up as an oversized rabbit. The costume he wore was hard to see through, so Megan became his “seeing eye carrot”, making sure he did not trip. She also got to dance and skip around with Mark.
They did a great job and the students enjoyed them very much. I wonder how many little ones wished they could be Megan and dance with the super tall rabbit!
We were asked if we would please help Daddy’s band. They are playing “What’s Up at the Symphony”, and wanted a Bugs Bunny in a few of the concerts. However, they got “Harvey” instead.
Today the kids went to a retirement home and helped make people smile. They enjoyed the chance to be silly and loved interacting with some of the residents.
For as long as I can remember, Mark and Andrea have had a really good mud fight on the first really warm day of the year. Today, Andrea persuaded Mark to come out, skip his school work and come play. They both enjoyed themselves and even let Megan come join the fun.
Every year, we go sledding. We were wondering if we would have the chance this year since we have received very little snow since Christmas and we have had some very warm weeks.
Today, when we woke up to a few inches of snow, the kids ran to shovel neighbors’s driveways and then we left to enjoy the sledding hills. We were thankful there was not enough snow to cancel nearby schools but enough that sledding would be fun.
We all enjoyed ourselves very much and spent over two hours playing outside. Since Megan did not mind the snow in her face for the first time and it seemed to make her laugh even louder, the kids tried new ways sledding down the hill. They raced each other and tried to get everyone to sled together as a group.
I enjoyed watching the kids interact with each other. They all wanted to play together and even though they split up sometimes and played alone, they seemed to have more fun being together. I am so thankful that even though the kids are different ages and all have different personalities, they are all best friends!
My great nephew came to visit today. He is usually very happy and loves to play with the kids, but we woke him up from his nap accidentally so he was not as cheerful as normal. I loved how his “puppy dog” eyes told us so much!
