Puzzle pieces

Wow,I know you are thinking where is Nate the Great? I haven’t blogged in a while because I was being a piece to a puzzle. So,  I know what you are thinking that  doesn’t make sense,but it does. When you a bieng a volunteer you are piece of the big puzzle. Not only person could make something as cool as the wounded warrior games happen. On last Tuesday , a huge group of people came together to honor the wounded warriors at a dinner. Everyone helped and supported the athletes to show them how much we cared about them. I was so lucky becuase , I got to go to the games , cheer on the athletes and got a ton of autographs from my hero’s.They inspired me  to know that even if you are hurt , or wounded you can still do anything you want to do . You can even make a record in a sport! Every volunteer that came to each event to support them was a piece to a puzzle.Even as young kids we can help.Our piece Of volunteering is just as important as grown ups. Because  you can’t make a puzzle without all the pieces. I want to challenge you to be a piece to a puzzle. It doesn’t have to be at the USO. Or wounded warriors, but any place you can make a difference.

The real adventures of military child! Spreading the Love!

So , I guess most everyone spent Valentine’s day celebrating love. My sister  and I got to celebrate it in the best way ever. This is One of those awesome things you get to do as a military kid. It really shows how great it is sometimes! We live near ,kinda near Camp Pendelton.I volunteer at USO San Diego, I know you already know this but it is back story.Camp Pendelton is the base for Marines and it is also home to the wounded Warrior division. Those are the guys who got hurt ,pretty bad. They have these games called Wounded Warrior trials. They have the games so the guys can still do the things they loved before they got hurt.Last night was the opening dinner,and we got to go. A bunch of kids from all over the US sent Valentines cards to service people. We took them up there and were lucky to be able to give them to all the athletes.My sister was a little scared at first because alot of them were missing arms or legs or in wheelchairs, but I said “Isabelle, they are people,just some are missing parts.you are missing teeth and I am not afraid of you!” They talk,hug and are just as nice as people with all their parts. I think they are really cool because some even have bionic parts.After that she wasn’t scared and we walked around and handed out all the cards. We talked to people from Canada,Germany,France,Ausralia and the east coast.They loved the cards.It was so cool , to see what sports they played and get lots of new friends. One asked if I had a girlfriend and I said ,”no way girls are trouble” they laughed .some asked where I went to school and some just asked for a hug.It was really cool! We are going back on Sunday to see the actual games and hand out snacks and energy drinks to the athletes,then on Tuesday we are going to the closing ceremony.So , being a military kid can be a huge pain sometimes, but last night it was an amazing adventure!  What a awesome way to spread the Love on the holiday for Love.Global citizen all the way!I will publish some pictures soon!

Valentine comings

Wouldn’t it be great if there were homecomings on Valentine’s Day!To me Valentine’s Day is a day you get to choose your valentine. It is a day you show love and appreciation for people. I want to appreciate my Dad and brother’s they defend us. They make it possible for us to get chocolate hearts and make valentines and give them to who ever we want. I appreciate and love them even more becuase they are fighting the bad guys , catching drug dealers and fighting pirates ,when I really want them to be home so I can tell them I love them.Wouldn ‘t it be great if they had homecomings on Valentine’s day? We would be so happyto see our Dad or brother and we could give them Chocolate too. Maybe somebody is coming home tomorrow.Since it will be at least a year till I get to see my brothers and Dad I will tell everyone how much I love them!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
