Mentoring Is Fun

June 17, 2014


Starting with speed dating (which didn’t even exist the last time I dated!), my match with Kim has been very special.  We did the two organized activities (movie night and “kinda” bowling at Main Event), but equally as fun for us is texting.  It is a quick and easy way that we can share things.  She doesn’t do Facebook, so I was able to text her the photo of her I found on the YWLA FB page—she was lunching with Principal Hall, Channel 5 Anchor Deborah Ferguson as well as two classmates at the Zodiac Room at Neiman Marcus after a behind the scenes tour.  When I see something that reminds me of her, I text her.  And vice versa.



One of the most fun times I have had this year at the Ballpark was when Kim and I attended a Saturday afternoon Rangers game.  We had a great lunch and enjoyed Lemon Chills about the sixth inning.   I have invited her to join me on the next Downtown Fort Worth Walking Tour so I can also show her around her school’s neighborhood, the downtown area.  Watch for us—you might see us in the Sundance Square fountains!   I am excited about her summer assignment to apply to colleges:  safe ones and stretch ones.  We are talking a lot about what she wants in a college.   I have also enjoyed getting to meet her parents—all three of us think Kim is super.  Kim will be in the very first graduating class of the Young Women’s Leadership Academy in 2016.
