This time, I had been informed that a crew had gone to the site and had begun to level the lot. Kassey and I packed up in the car again and headed out. As I cruised through the street this time, I noticed that noone was outside. The lot had been cleared and the trash had been cleaned up.

Kyara loved to play. When I would ask her what she enjoyed most at school it was one of two things, either the playground or naptime! When she was in Pre-School, she loved to ride on the tire swing. Each day when I would ask about her day, it was centered around the playground. They were either on the "little playground" or on the "big playground." She LOVED the big playground, because that's where the tire swing was. She would tell me all about "her boyfriend" pushing her on the tire swing. I met this "boyfriend" of hers a couple of times, and I must say, he was quite the charmer! When I was approached about the park build, I thought it really encompassed Kyara and her joy. It is an amazing project that will bring laughter and fun to a place that was a bit scary for a grown woman to drive through. I can't wait to see how God uses this build to touch others' lives.
One thing that Kyara could not escape from, no matter if she wanted to or not, was soccer. She was born into a family that loves the sport, so from the time she was barely walking, she was around soccer. Good thing she loved to play, too. I was looking through some old pictures, and found some to share...
|Sometimes the hardest part of soccer is not scoring the goal, but getting yourself out of the net after retrieving your ball!|
|These soccer pictures are from after the initial ingestion. Kyara didn't let the fact that she couldn't eat and had to use a G-Tube slow her down.|
|Look at that shielding technique. Arm out for feel, putting her body between her opponent and the ball, using her left foot to turn away from pressure...|
|Even when it was cold outside, she had a smile on her face and a ball at her feet!|
Have a blessed day!
