Friday after school we loaded up and headed to Radford to visit with family. One of my grandmothers is in a new apartment and we went by to see her. We then headed to the nursing home to visit my other grandmother. She is really doing awesome and loves her Hospice nurses.
Saturday morning we loaded up with GG and Pops to head to Charlottesville for a fun reason-a fashion show! Belk is a new partner with UVA Children's Hospital and they put on a fashion show with lots of kids and five Miracle Kids! Pops was our driver and GG helped me get Rock Star David ready for the show. Miracle Kids were allowed to wander around the store and pick out whatever outfit they wanted to model for the show. David started with the Under Armour section but then he decided to go dressy and he really wanted to wear a sport coat! Here he is with Mr. Ryan checking out the awesome selection at Belk!
If you think this looks fun it really was except that it was HARD WORK! We were sweating and working hard in the dressing room with David who only wanted to dance in the dressing room in front of all those mirrors. The price tags stressed him out but we could not take them off until we knew that it fit properly. I could not have done it without Pops (our driver for the day) and GG (who scoured the store for Dave's sizes). It took a village to get this dude looking awesome! Children with Down Syndrome have short arms and legs and it is difficult to get clothes to fit properly.
Striking the sassy pose! Amazingly the Miracle Kids got to keep the clothes they modeled up to $100! Thank you Belk for not only blessing us with new clothes, but for a fun day to raise money and awareness for UVA Children's Hospital. What an awesome day!
Today Kyle was suppose to head to Kingsport for a baseball tourney-clearly it was cancelled when we woke up to more snow. This is the winter that will never end!!!! After our busy and fun two days I am thankful for a day of rest at home! Have a great week!
