    It was the first game day that I attended. We took a bus to Tyler elementary school which was only 15 minutes from Walker Jones. We pulled up t the field and had a few minutes of warming up before the girls played. They tied 0-0 but it was interesting to see how Mr. Smith and Jim coached. The boys played next and they lost 1-0. I am so used to seeing older players play but it brought back childhood memories. I want to find a way to get involved with game days whether it just be simple things as setting up warmups or such.

    Volunteering was just what I needed to feel myself again and was a very good first day of working with DC Scores. The kids were a bit rowdy and hyper but I think it was because they were excited. It definitely showed me a different side of nonprofits because I have not worked in this type of setting, but I really enjoyed meeting the kids. I am looking forward to working with them!

    The first day I volunteered at Dumbarton Oaks. We learned about an invasive species of plants that are killing the plants and trees around it and then spent 3 hours weeding it out. There were a lot of bugs but it was very rewarding to see how much progress we had made. The second day I volunteered at Life Pieces to Master Pieces. The school was not in session nor was the program, but Soffi and I helped clean out the storage closet and organize the items into boxes. I really liked learning about the stories behind the art and how their program runs.

    Maggie and I attended this training in order to get certified to serve with DC scores. It was very interesting because a lady came to talk to DC Scores about different ways to lead and interact with the kids. It was a long day but we also got to sit in on a poetry workshop which was very interesting! we got to write our own poems and learn the techniques of helping kids write poetry too.
