Field Trip to Dallas!
Last Saturday, a group of Advent mentors and volunteers took three boys on a field trip to Dallas to the the Stars play! The boys have been taking weekly hockey lessons, but had never seen a professional game. The Stars won 2-0, and the boys had a great time!
It’s amazing how confined these kids are to their circumstances. One boy sheepishly admitted that he’d never even been to Dallas! They were in awe of the large buildings and city lights.
On multiple occasions, I heard them exclaim how “this is the best night ever!!!” It’s the small things that make kids smile. We all had a great time, and it was a great mentor-mentee relationship bonding time.
