Zoo Day,...

Monday was ZOO DAY!!!

For the annual charity event the morning proved to be hot and humid,...in fact so humid,...I had to wipe off the camera lens more than once when we were having a pre-zoo photo shoot. 


Isaac attends an early intervention preschool and the students were treated to a VIP experience at our local zoo.


Including breakfast buffet and free t-shirts, which I, of course, embellished for Isaac as volunteers were going to take the children around the zoo while we, parents rested in the air conditioned zoo lodge. 


It's difficult to see in this picture,...but I graffitied a warning on the back of Isaac's shirt. It reads:

I run very, very FAST!

After watching Isaac zoom laps on the lawn not a volunteer at the event doubted that statement! 

Teachers and therapists from the school were there as well to help with the children, as the volunteers were not accustomed to the particular needs of each student,...

Two sweet young women squired Isaac about the zoo,...they loved he was so fast and so unique with his sign language and what verbal speech he has mastery of,...and although the volunteers didn't know sign language,...that didn't prove to be a problem because Isaac was 'teaching' them pertinent 'signs' - as he is an expert and getting his message across. 

Photo shoots are not Isaac's thing and although he warmed up to his helpers, he preferred big brother's arms for the obligatory pix. 


Grateful heart thanks to those who made this event possible,...sometimes it is hard to be on the receiving end of charity,...until you remember that charity means: LOVE.

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
