My darling Damien impressed the pants off yet another group of people today!
My cousin Ydnic is running a holiday program for extremely under privileged children this week (the first week of the school holidays), and she asked last week if Damien would be interested in helping her out. He agreed (I was a wee bit surprised at this as he’s still a little wary of anything church related… that’s going to be a long road I think) and I dropped him off at 6:30am this morning!
When I collected him this afternoon Ydnic told me he had done incredibly well- he was a leader of a group of about 12 grade 4, 5, 6 and 7 kids (along with two other youths) and Ydnic said the kids loved him! He worked his tail off! Apparently Ydnic’s mom also commented on how intelligent my gorgeous boy is but she didn’t tell me how she came to that conclusion (I always knew that so it’s no surprise to me of course).
He’s going to be helping out every day this week.
oh- and go check out my photo blog– I took some new ones of Damien last week…
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
