Rachel from Empowering Mommy stayed overnight last night and we talked all things bloggy. It was so great talking to another woman about something I love to do.
I turned the tv on to see what the weather was supposed to be like and the Today show came on. What’s the first thing I see? The NYC ladies standing outside the Today Show studios with their Do Good Day signs! It was sooo cool!
We woke all four kids up this morning and hit the road headed to The Science Museum of Minnesota. Thank goodness she had her GPS with her because we got there with only one little miscalculation.
Bob and his team at the Science Museum totally rocked! They had tables set up for us that we had the activities for kids to do, the seed packets, and the shovel & pails.
It was an interesting reaction to the kids handing out the dollar bills. People kept shaking their heads and saying, “No thank you.” We kind of got the idea that visitors to the Museum thought we might be part of a religious organization or that the kids were giving away their own money.
Once people started seeing us interacting with families and children, they became curious. Earlier this week, Sarah had a stupendous idea: to encourage kids to plant the seeds and seed paper they were given they took home a shovel & pail! Great ideas abound with this group of ladies.
The families didn’t get much of a chance to get to know each other very well, because we were so focused on Do Good Day activities. Those ladies did such a great job! I was proud to be part of the Minnesota Team today!
I'd like to give a huge shout out to 77kids.com, themotherhood.com and The Science Museum of MN for making this all possible. The kids t-shirts, $77/blogger to hand out, and goodies were all given to each participant.
