So we are in the last few days of the year 2013 and since October 29, 2013 (my 32nd birthday) this is what I have done with my Birthday Bucket List.
- #14. Go visit my family in Jamaica
- #15. Go visit my family in Canada
- #17. raise over $3000 with my Annual Bday Book Drive for my 1st/2nd grade students (or as close to it as possible)
#14. In September of this year my dearest Grandmother, aka Momma, died. We usually go home (Jamaica) every December for Christmas and to celebrate her birthday (Dec. 27). It was a bitter sweet time…below are some pics.
#15. November was great! Another mini family reunion, this time on my Mummie’s side of the family. My Great Aunt, Auntie Vad, was turning 90! Boy did we PARTY!!
#17. This year I raised almost $2,000 to purchase books for my students. Instead of people celebrating my 32nd birthday by giving me presents, I asked for them to donate the money to my students so that I can buy them books so that they could start a personal library at home. This year I extended the recipients to students at my church who have done well in school. At the moment I am creating a video for this event.
