During April vacation, I asked my niece, Meg, if she wanted to do some volunteer work with me. Her answer was a resounding "yes!" We made a plan to go to Cradles to Crayons in Quincy and volunteer for a couple of hours together. On our way there, we stopped at the local food pantry and dropped off a donation. When she was talking to her mom when we were finished, I was happy to hear her say, "it was so much fun. I can't wait to do it again.". Sometimes teenagers can surprise you, I guess.
