It has been a couple of weeks since I last updated everyone. Really there is so much to talk about!
Since my last post I’ve been keeping busy. My Gram, Mom, Finn and Amelia went with me to the Blue Ball Barn in Wilmington for the Cabot Community Tour event. It was fun and I had a chance to see Delaware’s First Lady Carla Markell again. The Fun Department was there, too, from WSTW and they were playing music and had games and stuff. It was a fun event.
Then on Friday June 20th I went to Dover with my Mom. This time I spoke to a group just outside of Legislative Hall and it was the IM40 4-H group who had come to Legislative Hall for a field trip. It was a small group of kids but they asked good questions and it was kind of nice to talk to kids and try and encourage them to help out around their community.
Plus Ms. Kyle Jones from WMDT ABC 47 came to interview me and she took some video of me talking to the group and then it was on ABC 47 in Salisbury, Maryland.
She was really nice and so were the kids. And the leader’s name was Ms. Sequoia Rent and she gave me a cool IM40 shirt and she said she was very proud of me.
And then on Sunday, June 22nd I delivered 60 bags to the Emmanuel Dining Room. They were all work force bags so they had additional toiletry items in them. Many thanks to the girl scouts who gave me many of those donations.
Then on Wednesday, June 25th bright and early in the morning my Mom took me to Wilmington and I was able to meet a bunch of the staff from the Ministry of Caring. I talked with them at their staff meeting. I told them about what I have been doing with Brae’s Brown Bags and I also told them about why it is important. The person who introduced me, his name is Mark, he was so nice. He said really nice things about me and it made me feel important. He even said that when I’m old enough to have a job that there are a bunch of things he would like to hire me to do. Include being a lobbyist which I had to ask my Mom what that meant. And when he introduced me he was talking about how there are hundreds of abbreviations that people know all over the world because they are a symbol of something important and of something that makes a difference. He said like MLK and JFK, like NASA and SOS. He said the newest important abbreviation, one that people all over will know and it will mean something to them will be 3B. I am not sure that I could have smiled bigger or felt more happy than I did when he said those things. At the same time I could not believe he was talking about me and 3B.
So thank you. Thank you to everyone who helps me with Brae’s Brown Bags and please know that you are also helping everyone who gets one of the 3B bags. We are all making a difference, one bag at a time.
My Mom and I have been sending out invitations to my 3B Summer Celebration. It’s going to be a super fun family event held at the YMCA in Bear and it is for everyone who has helped Brae’s Brown Bags grow. So be on the look out for your invite.
Oh and my stepdad and my Mom and my brother, we all went to see a concert last night. We saw American Authors, The Script and OneRepublic and it was AWESOME! So awesome! I knew a lot of the songs. I am hoping to get them so I can listen to them now at home, too.
Big BIG things are coming up and I can’t wait to tell all of you but it has to wait a little bit. So check back here in the next week or so to find out what amazing opportunity I have been given for July!
