Recently, my brother came over to visit my grandson Zion. He had a dandy idea of setting up two litre pop bottles as bowling pins. With a couple of balls, my brother made a homemade bowling alley in the backyard.
I remember when I was a child living in McCauley, my younger sister and I used to enjoy playing at the park. I take my grandson to the park from time to time – but getting him to leave the park is another story!
Youth have so much to enjoy in the community. The Boys and Girls Club has activities to enjoy and sometimes events that can get kids to participate. I used to do some event coordination with music and I had my younger kids volunteer. It was a fun learning experience for them.
Family time with children or youth in general is time well spent. I sometimes watch my daughter cook different recipes in the kitchen and I find she is getting to be a wonderful little baker. My grandson loves to dance. Sometimes when we have a fellowship and the dancing begins, watch out – he won’t let you sit down. My niece is a dancer and has travelled worldwide. She started when she was a young child in school. Now she is a professional dancer and choreographer. I am proud of her talents. She is also a resident of McCauley.
Encouraging youth helps them realize their dreams and make good choices. Taking time for one another is beneficial as we learn from one another and walk together in love.
