When You Wish Upon A Star...

Today we volunteered with Hands on Charlotte as part of the Disney Give a Day, Get a Day program.  I've probably been saying for the last 5 or 6 years that I want to go to Disney World.  And with Susan and Mike (Barrett's mom and stepdad) living in Florida, I thought I was getting closer to actually being able to go. Then...thank you Disney!  They started a program this year that gives you a free day pass to a Disney World theme park if you give a day of service in your community.

We hooked up with Hands on Charlotte, part of the national Hands On Network, and worked on clearing a space at a local elementary school for an outdoor science lab.  Basically, we completely demolished the school's courtyard to make way for new gardens and projects from each grade level.  We cleared out bushes, took down trellises, and dug up roots.  It was a beautiful day outside and we actually had a good time!

We are so looking forward to our trip to Florida in May!  Can't wait to visit the Happiest Place on Earth!
