Summer Wrap Up

Summer is coming to a close and the last few weeks have been wonderful. I wrapped up the Celebrate Virginia Concert Series. I can’t wait until next year. If you missed it check out the CVL Rewind at Fredericksburg Live. I love being apart of Project 324.

After the last show, I headed down to Florida to see my family. I really enjoyed singing for my grandma. My Pop was moving along great. I am glad he is doing better. I was really scared after his stroke last year.

I went on an airboat to check out the alligators. Well…it is the scariest thing EVER. Watching Gator Boys or Swamp People on TV is one thing, having the gator swim up to your boat and you are inches off the water is another. I crossed it off my bucket list and do not need to do that again. We also went to the Miami Seaquarium. I really love dolphins. I didn’t get to swim with them, but It was exciting to see dolphins performing with a Killer Whale. It was a very hot day. I was glad to get back and go swimming with my cousin. I pretty much spent the whole week in the water. I love to swim. My Aunt said we were developing gills. We watched a lot of Olympics.

Last weekend I participated in the Feature Film “Senior Prank”. I was part of the Homecoming scene. I am very proud of this movie because it is about anti-bullying. I have been bullied in the past and I think it is very important to spread awareness. Some kids think that picking on someone else and calling it “joking” is not bullying. Well it is!  Grandma says, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.

My brother leaves for college this week. I know we fight a lot but I will really miss him. My mom is going to be a wreck. It will be fun to visit him through the year. I can’t believe 6th grade is only 2 weeks away. I am a little nervous, but I will power through.

Fall starts the busy season for fundraising. Children’s Hospital Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network have several fun events planned.

 I encourage everyone to take a virtual tour of Children’s Hospital of Richmond. Remember…“Every Dollar Makes a Difference”

 More to come….

34 Days…

JUST 34 DAYS until school starts!! Are you kidding me? I can’t believe summer is almost over. When did August get here? I still have so much I want to do on my bucket list.

Yes, I have a bucket list. I started it with my mom when she was talking about the one she created. One thing on mine I will be doing soon is riding on an airboat and checking out alligators in the Everglades.

What is on yours? I have all kinds of things. Places I want to visit, things I want to do, and people I want to meet. If you could meet anyone who would it be? Mine is Adele or Selena Gomez. Where you expecting me to say Justin Bieber? Well, of course he is on the list too. I have my people broken out by boys and girls. HEHEEHE!

I have spent the summer working on learning to sing Adele’s songs. I am hoping my grandma can show me how to play “Someone Like You” on the piano. Here are a few things on my list:

People to meet:

  • Adele
  • Selena Gomez
  • Ellen Degeneres
  • Justin Beiber
  • Alex Ovechkin

Places to go:

  • Hershey Park
  • London
  • Busch Gardens

Things to do:

  • White Water Rafting
  • Have a talk show
  • Drive a go cart

Catching Up

It has been a few days since I have had any updates. I was exhausted after last weekend’s concerts. I loved how many people stopped by the Project 324 Dunk Tank and Bull and asked “Are you Megs in the ‘Burg? I read your blog.” That was so cool. We raised a lot of money for Project 324 last weekend. Thank you!

Daughtry put on a great show. There is a big difference between Rock and Country Star personalities. The crowd at Celebrate Virginia Live was huge. We need this kind of support all year long for all the concerts.

I can’t believe the last concert of the season is Friday.  I have met some great people (Dave, Nate, Matt H, Matt M, Dr. Ray, Dawn, Mike, Brian, Ms. Rita, Chelsea, Leah, Shanda, Michelle, all the security guys, event staff, and volunteers).  I will miss everyone until next season. I hope everyone will say thank you to those in Red and Blue shirts. They are all volunteers who help to make each season a success.

Several folks asked me how a little girl got involved in charity work. I do it because I love it and I enjoy making a difference. I pick charities that are personal to me.

Children’s Hospital and Miracle Network provide comfort, treatment, and hope for all illnesses. That means so much to me since not everyone fits into a category for fundraising. Project 324 is about helping to fund programs in our community that center around music and performing arts. My dream is to be an entertainer. My goal is to go into broadcasting and have my own talk show. I am sure lots of kids have a similar dream and Project 324 will help them get there.
