Helping others

This morning, Sunny was telling Ella that she wasn’t going to be home for dinner because she was volunteering at the ballgame to raise money for a Giants fan who was badly hurt at a Dodger game.   Sunny basically told her that there were some really badly behaving people who hurt this man for no reason at all.  She also explained that the Giants were raising money to help out his family with medical and life expenses.  I asked Ella if she wanted to donate some of her piggy bank money to help out the guy’s kids and she thought long and hard about it.  “OK, I will” said Ella.  I asked her if she thought $10 would be a good amount and she thought it was.  She came upstairs with me, took a $10 bill our of her piggy bank thing and gave it to Sunny.  Sunny told her that she was doing a “mitzvah”, a blessing.  I think Ella felt good about it.  Ella was in a great mood when I picked her up from school today.  They broke open an old honey comb at school today and found a bunch of dead bees in all different stages of “life” if you want to call it that.  She was really excited about everything that they found.  Ella also loved meeting a Ball Python at Tree Frog Treks.  Ballet was also great.110.jpg I think Ella’s shirt is right…Girls WILL save the world.29.jpg Paying close attention.37.jpg Getting ready for a special dance move.

    I think that backwards ballet step qualifies for the ” Ministry of Silly Walks”; don’t let Papa try it. Love you. Mom
