A Day In The Life Of A Blade Of Grass Friday, August 21, 2009

So, this is the film my brilliant and funny 12 year old entered in a local film contest.  It was the first film he has ever done.  He did pretty much everything by himself, except Allen did what little editing was needed and recorded the music.  Yep.  Everything else was all Zane.   He didn’t win any awards but, there is always next year and the year after and the year after and the year after….

So, I discovered, by accident, that there is a program put on by the state of Texas to give all kids under the age of 18 free meals during the summer.  Yep.  In my area, the kids can get a snack and a lunch with no hassle and fuss at area schools, all they need to do, is show up at the correct times.  You do not have to show proof of income or age.  And, you don’t have to register or get tickets to participate.  So, want to know if there is anything in your area of the state?  Go to www.SummerFood.org.  For some reason, it didn’t show anything when I searched for something within my city but, when I searched by county, it showed quite a few in my city.  Weird but, true.  I think this is a great thing for anyone with kids out there.  And, something I should tell everyone about!
