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….
