I have had an exhausting, but awesome week. I few weeks ago I decided that I was not going to wait for someone to start doing things for our littlest warriors, so I started contacting non-profits and asked for help with a few ideas. The Aleethia Foundation, Operation Ward 57 and the Yellow Ribbon Fund were thrilled to help me. So let the fun begin!
Sunday Aleethia treated 9 family members to a spa day. Most were mother/daughter teams, but one was a new caregiver that I asked to be added to the list. It was a huge hit and smiles were every where.
On Monday, the Yellow Ribbon Fund treated the littlest warriors to a day exploring the National Building Museum and the Lego exhibit. As you can see from these faces we had a ton of fun!! Their favorite part was the Mini-Golf that was downstairs. But you can tell they enjoyed the Legos too.
Wednesday Operation Ward 57 treated a group of 9 cuties to a day at Color Me Mine and then lunch at Panera Bread. You can see from this one, some serious creativity was going on!
Yesterday morning I got caught up on work, then was off to a meeting. I rushed back to the apartment to grab my family to join our fellow wounded warrior families at another great dinner provided by Aleethia. We love Aleethia dinners. They are the such a great place to enjoy a great meal with our fellow wounded warrior families.
Sunday through Friday was so incredibly busy, but all the smiles that were created made it all worth wild. I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to the Aleethia Foundation, Operation Ward 57 and the Yellow Ribbon Fund for helping me make this week possible.
