In honor of my ears 6th birthday I have just dropped off over 2 dozen sand buckets to CHOP. We even surprised the Drs and nurses with some nice warm Philly pretzels to go along with the kids goodies. I love to see their smiling faces when we walk in.
Today I was priveledged to meet a little boy that I gave a bucket to. He was only one year old but he immediately pulled Woofi out of that bucket. I was able to meet him before his surgery took place so he was wide awake. The other special thing that happened was a lovely woman came up to me with tears flowing down her cheeks. She was crying because she was so touched by my sand bucket project. She was so kind that she wrote a check out to my Mommy and then the nice lady and I both shed some tears together. I must be like my Mommom in a Hallmark store. I cried very easily today when that wonderful lady started hugging me. It was beautiful!
Last night another awesome thing happened. Pennsburg United Church of Christ donated their entire Vacation Bible School offering to my bucket project~!! How incredibly awesome is that. I felt so blessed by the people at that church. Not only did I get over 160.00 in cash but a 5 gallon bucket that had neat things in it like snacks and Barbie dolls, clothing, games. All things that will also be donated to CHOP.
My next bucket drop off will be in the middle of October. This bucket drop off is happening because my Uncle Jamie is getting married October 19th. Instead of favors at his wedding there will be a donation made to CHOP via my buckets. It would be neat to find all white sand buckets to mark the occasion. We will have to think of something a little different.
I better start selling some brownies to get money for my next bucket drop off, it will be here before we know it.
I am still waiting to hear if I will be a recipent of some AG Bell Scholarship money so that I can attend Pennview Christian School. Mommy said we should be hearing about that in August. Keep your fingers crossed cause I really really want to go back to Pennview. It is the best place for me to be with my implants. We get to pray everyday at that school too. I don't think that can happen if I don't attend Pennview.
