it's almost summer vacation. my mind is gone.
my baseball boy is still doing well. he's smiling more and more every day. i'm going to his game tomorrow. they're playing a really good team, so he says i have to stay until the end this time.
i talked to guidance, and i've made sure they put him in my class next year. i told her that i can reach him.
on to the big news...there is a young girl at my school who has a genetic heart problem. over this past weekend, she had complications and needed a transplant. she recieved her heart after only three days of waiting.
now, obviously this is an expensive procedure, and the parents are swamped. so, her counselor decided to fundraise to donate money to the family...somehow (i still haven't figured out how) i got volunteered to head up this effort. i organized a change drive competition among all the classes. the counselor and i were thinking we'd make $1000 or so...in four days we've made over $5000!! it's amazing how the school is banding together.
i'm amazed by the amount of money students have donated and also by the generousity they've shown. it's so heart-warming to see the students behaving this way. sometimes i forget they're not little monsters all the time...
with the way things are going, we'll make several thousand dollars tomorrow...everyday we've doubled what we made the day before...
as great as it is to see, i'll be glad for tomorrow. raising five grand in four days is exhausting.
