Spring Break


Yes it is finally Spring Break!  Lindenwood University has spring break roughly 3 weeks later then every one else! This is because of a wonderful thing called: J-Term! It is a blessing and a curse. 

I am so excited to be on break that I decided to write on the right side of the page!:) Ha! So what is everyone doing for spring break? I hear some people are going to Mexico, Florida, Utah,  and other exciting locations! I have been asked many times what are you doing for spring break? Well Now I tell you the exciting details!

  Are you excited to find out? I bet it is killing you! I am so excited to spill the beans on my spring break plans that I had to switch up the area of writing again! HAHA

Ok for real now, I am driving to my location, 6 1/2 hours away to.....WAIT FOR IT.... OMAHA!!!! I am so excited to go back home for my FINAL SPRING BREAK EVER AS AN UNDERGRAD!! 

"Wait what? This is your final spring break, you are not going anywhere special?"
-No I am not, I have given up my senior spring break to do something awesome! 
"What do you mean?"
-In April I will be heading to Ohio to attend Banshee Media Day event and also attend a fundraiser for A Kid Again! I have given up my spring break to help children! 
"Is this a plug to help raise money again?"
-No this is not, I am just super excited to tell you how much this fundraiser means to me! you don't have to donate at all, all you have to do it SHARE!!
A Kid again is a wonderful foundation that I have talked about a lot, instead of telling you over and over why this means so much to me, I figured I would tell you by sharing what other people think of A Kid Again!

"As a very greatful parent of a Kid Again kid, I thank you for your time, effort, and love. The smiling faces we see at the Holiday party make all the difference in that event. From the moment we walk into the venue, Amelia and her sisters and I are greeted with smiles and laughter from what seems like a million happy people, all there to make our day better.
When my girls wanted to go in two different directions, one volunteer said she’d keep an eye on one for me. When we got to the meal and I couldn’t carry our prizes and two meals, and hold onto my youngest, a kind man took both meals from me and escorted us to a table.  The women at the face painting station are ALWAYS a huge hit, of course, even trying the specific requests each child seems to come up with.
And this is just one event. Each time a volunteer gives his or her time, it helps brighten the day of one of our kids. And we thank you.
Amelia was born with spina bifida, and has had 49 surgeries in her 8 years so far. She is blessed with many people who care about her and two wonderful sisters, but she also copes with more than her fair share of complications. Her sisters deal with this in their own way, as well.  A Kid Again means the world to Amelia, and to her sisters. Just the other day, one of her sisters said, “I wish Amelia didn’t have to deal with everything she does, but it sure is nice that people invite us to fun places.”
Thanks You! We appreciate all of the hours, and smiles, and the love that you share with our family.
~Pam Murphy, mom of Amelia, Claire and Emma"

So if you feel very generous about donating please help me out! I am aiming for a goal of $250!  I am at 38% and feel that I could make it, but I need all of your help! This is such an amazing cause, even $1 will help more then anything! Here is the donate link: 

Thank you for your help and hope you all have an amazing spring break! The semester is almost over, lets take this breather and relax for a bit!
