Picnic in the Park June 30, 2016 by SarahRoseS
On June 18th, the weather turned cold and gloomy. Heavy rain lashed down, and I hosted a picnic in the park. Not the best timing. I rented a small building on the edge of the playground in a local park, where I brought crafts and food for everyone.
The playground outside had three climbing rocks, swings, spinning ropes, and lots of space to play in. After most of the people had arrived, three other kids and I decided to go outside to play hide and seek, even though it was still raining on-and-off. A small gathering of parents and kids ate, talked, made beautiful art, walked around the park, and played outside.
My picnic in the park was a definite success, and it was tons of fun to run!
Last Sunday, I spent the whole day doing art to raise money for Saving Kids' Sight. I loved coming up with ideas, and putting them to paper, for a great cause. The Art-A-Thon was so successful that I continued to draw through the week, adding some whimsical subjects as well. Over $900 has been raised, which is awesome!
The goal of my blog is to increase awareness of childhood glaucoma and other eye diseases, and to unite kids like me living with visual impairment.
