Madison had her first field trip of the year today, to the Ronald McDonald house. It was a quick field trip, but they got to see where families of sick children can stay for free while their kids are in the hospital. I wouldn't classify this as one of the most "fun" field trips ever, but I think it was good for the kids to see and remember that sometimes life is very hard for people and there are many ways we can serve. Madison is doing a great job of getting settled into school at OCS. She is so shy and quiet though. It's hard for my Momma's heart to watch her be by herself, while all of the other little girls are grouped together. I want to fix it, but I just pray that God will help her to make the friends He has for her. She seems happy, and I definitely think it bothers me more than it does her, so I'm thankful for that. Madison has made a friend named Adalee, but she wasn't there on the day of the field trip.
We are still just taking it a day at a time, and trusting that God is at work, even though it's hard in the process. I'm so glad I got to meet them at the Ronald McDonald house...Brian had a test run early on this morning, so I was able to do that with him, get him settled back at the house, and then drive back to the city for Madi's field trip. I love this little snaggle-toothed girl so much!!
Here is Mrs. Parsons class...
The kids were fascinated by the juke box!
