Our team started off the day a little different than usual. We first split up into two different groups. Five of us went and joined the TLC program while the rest stayed to help around the school. The TLC program allows older kids with disabilities get out into the city and go to places such as: the church to help clean, HEB to go grocery shopping, or even participate in internships. While five of us helped with this program the other part of our team stayed at the school to work outside. We began with the beautification project by cleaning up the memorial garden and raking up the leaves. We then continued by sanding down one of the picnic tables and painting it pink, yellow, and blue. Around 12, our group all met up again to eat lunch. The school was so kind to provide us with pizza After our break we joined the kids to have a planting party.
All of us had a wonderful time getting to watch the students help us plant and water the gardens. It was such a joy to get to be a part of it. Finally, after we cleaned up from the garden we joined the kids at the student store. This ended up taking a great turn into a dance party. Getting to see the joy some of the students had getting to dance around made it ten times better. These kids are such a blessing and touched each and everyone of our hearts .I also want to thank the staff at the school and how much of a blessing they are. The entire school showed us nothing but kindness and seeing them interact with the children is so sweet. It was very hard to leave but our team will for sure be back to visit.
