Hi! It’s Lexi! Want to know something I absolutely love? Family time and exploring new things!!!!! I was able to enjoy both of those things this weekend. We went to WINTERGREEN with my parents, sister, brothers, grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins!!!!! Me and my cousin even Face-Timed each other what we wanted to pack because on Sunday we were heading off to our first POLO match. I have NEVER been to one of those before and was super excited!! We went hiking, swimming, and exploring on Sat.
On Sunday, it was our chance to get dressed up. #kingfamilyvineyards. It was so cool to see the horses and the “chukkers.” I learned that is what you call the people on the horses playing the game. Everyone was so nice! Me and my cousin were asked to participate in the half-time game that was called the horse hopping contest. We got to go on a blow up horse and hop to the finish line! We didn’t win the free shirt and hat, but sure did have fun!
Here is the great news!!! My Mom and Dad saw a couple of people sitting near us watching the match. In their tent, they had BE KIND signs hanging from their tent. My mom went with me over to their tent and we started talking to them about their plaques and the Kind Kid Club. We found out that Ms. Beth went to the same elementary school, middle, and even high school as me and my brothers!!!! That is AWESOME!! Ms. Stacey told us that a lady started making the signs to pass out near where I live. I hope to meet her one day! Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth make these and pass out to people they meet. That is so cool!
Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth told me that people can make these signs and pass them on and inside of the big hearts people sign their initials and give them away. They said I can talk to my art teacher and see if we can maybe do the Be Kind art project at school. This is a great project for YOUR school, too! Ms. Stacey and Ms. Beth were so nice and kind! Thank you both for my Be Kind plaques And REMEMBER Kind is Cool!!!!!!!!!!
This is a picture of Dawn. Dawn saw a news article about our Kind Kid Challenge – Soles For Souls. She came all the way from Ashland (which is about 45 minutes away from our school) to drop shoes off! We did not get a chance to meet her because we were in class, but my mom did, and said she was super nice!

WOW!! It’s hard to believe how amazing our day at school went! We had an assembly for Soles for Souls. Ms. Stephanie Hathaway from the Soles4Souls organization came and spoke to the whole school (yep, everyone in the school!) about where the shoes are going.

Last week, we got to meet with the Superintendent, Dr. Daugherty, and School Board member, Mrs. Carrie Coyner. They came to see what was going on, and even brought in some shoes to donate. We have decided that 1000 shoes is not going to be enough. There are so many people we can help, so our new goal is 2000 pairs of shoes…yep, that’s right, we think we can get 2000 pairs. We are asking for help from the community, and can’t wait to see what happens. We have learned that people love to help if given the chance. If you want to see how the visit with Dr. Daugherty and Mrs. Carrie Coyner went, check it out here.

The other day my mom and I went to get gas after my Nona’s birthday dinner, and we pulled up to the gas tank, and something was hanging off of the gas pump. Someone had attached a bag that had a mother’s day cross and bible verse with some candies inside the bag for the next customer that pulled in. We ended up leaving it for the next customer, but thought it was a very kind gesture!
