My FIRST Charity Event

Remember my Busy Weekend post telling you about the charity event I was volunteering at? Well I did it!! When I got there, they asked me to be in charge of the child care. So for 5 hours, I watched little kids. We colored, watched movies (including Land Before Time!!!) and because I was the oldest one watching the kids whenever a baby would come in, they would give them to me… for the most part, they were good, there were only 2 that wouldn’t stop crying so we had to go find Mom for them :)

So here are my pictures I drew with the kids…

My tree…
There was one little girl so impressed with this tree that she first she tried to copy it… and then she stole it!! At least I got a picture before she took it though :)

And my fish bowl on a table… Aren’t I such a talented artist?? A bunch of little kids tried to copy this one too… it was cute :)

One little girl showed a drawing of me she made… I looked like a big yellow blob, but of course told her it was beautiful :)

Overall the volunteering was fun and I met some really sweet people… although 5 hours of watching little kids wore me out!!! So instead of going out with my old-new friends, this is what my Saturday night looked like….
a good book and a glass of wine...
Man, I look SUPER tired here! But don’t worry, I am going to hang out with my old-new friends soon!!

Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!!!

WTG for volunteering. I bet it was exhausting.

Great artwork.

And, a nice way to wind down the day.

Wow - you are quite the artist. Sorry the book made you cry. I gave you plenty of fair warning though in my defense!
