What a great day yesterday! Todd and I went to Livermore Elementary School and Red Feather Elementary School to read Dr. Seuss books to students. There is nothing more enjoyable then having a room full of children sitting in front of you listening to a story.

If you have the time to volunteer to read to kids, trust me, it will do more for you than you could ever imagine. Spending time with kids is what life is all about. Those smiles are priceless especially if you had something to do with putting it there.

We started the day in Livermore where we read 3 books to the kids. You have not lived until you’ve heard Todd read “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket”. They were so fun playing along with our noises and voices. We

finished reading and were treated to pizza and apples from the wonderful staff there. We look forward to returning and visiting our new little friends soon.

We then loaded up and headed to Red Feather. What a welcome! We were brought into the gym/cafeteria where two big rocking chairs and cat in the hat hats were waiting for us. On the wall behind us was a huge banner made by the staff and students to welcome us. We felt so wanted and appreciated. There was a small sea of children on pillows and blankets waiting for us to play. It just fills my heart and soul to get to experience this kind of day.

When we finished reading we did a little stretching and exercising routine with the kids called “chicken fat”. As if that wasn’t enough, the staff then gave us a donation for our 28 hours of hope AND a pound of bacon for Todd and me and even wrote us a Dr. Seuss type rhyme.

Here is that rhyme from Principal Patrick Kind Courtesy of YouTube:

We cannot thank the staff and students enough for making us feel so special and welcome. I am so proud and honored to do what I get to do for a living and getting to spend time with our children is the most rewarding aspect of it.

God bless our children and thank you for the opportunity to be in your lives.
