Madonna Learning Center 5/21/13
What a special blessing to get the opportunity to host a day of fishing & fun at our house for the "Senior High" & Big Class". They were able to enjoy fishing for catfish, a water slide, a dunk tank, & burgers, hotdogs, etc.
They caught 10 fish, all of which were very nice, & 1 was about 4 lbs. Not every kid caught a fish but every kid had a smile on their face & that's what it's all about.
This was the 3rd year we've been able to do this & it was the best one yet. These young men & women are such a joy to be around & it always touches your heart when they run to you & give you a hug & say thank you.
We have so much to be thankful for as parents. I have had the great honor to be around these kids for the last 15 years because my niece is special needs & has attended Madonna for all of her school years. The teachers do an outstanding job working with these kids & teaching them a lot of things. The most important thing being that each kid is very loved & is special to God as well as to the teachers.
The one thing I'm always amazed at is how happy these kids are. It doesn't have to be a big elaborate event to get them excited & they love one another unconditionally.
There's a lot we can learn from the young men & women of Madonna about every day living.
Thanks to the teachers, volunteers who helped us, & all of the students from Madonna for making this such a great day. I can't wait to do it again.
