Thousands of North Texas kids went back to school this week. Adjusting to the new routine can be tough – and tiring.

The little ones in elementary school , especially, are sometimes worn out by the end of the day.

Cindy Burlin, of Fort Worth, just couldn’t resist sharing a picture of her trio.

Burlin told us her twin kindergartners and her second grader crashed Monday as they all waited in the car for an after school treat from Sonic.

Burlin said on that first day, “they all woke up extra early on their own because they were so excited for school.”

The adrenalin was all gone, though, by the end of the day, and the kids just couldn’t stay awake – even for their favorite treat.

Burlin said “there’s no tired like the first day of school tired.”

And, she knows this well. Burlin is an award-winning music teacher at Tanglewood Elementary School. Her children go there, too, so Monday brought another big moment for the family. It was the first day for Burlin and her three children to all go to the same school for the first time

The veteran educator fully appreciated the sweet moment in back of the family car as her pooped-out kids took some time for a little cat nap.

“They are so very happy and love school. That’s why I love the photo. It’s a very happy tired, which any parent loves, “ she wrote to NBC 5.

After living in New York for 26 years, North Texas native George Crittenden Jr., says he recently decided it was time to move back home and care for his aging parents -- but he's having a hard time keeping up with them.

Crittenden said his dad, 94-year-old George Crittenden Sr., retired from the ministry in 1987 and, along with his wife, 91-year-old Edith, got busy helping others.

The couple formed the League of Mercy with the Salvation Army where, several days a week, they visit patients in Tarrant County nursing homes.

"My mother memorizes what each home needs; their apartment is an ever changing landscape of donations, waiting to be delivered," Crittenden said.

When they're not visiting nursing homes, the days are filled with other acts of service.

"My dad, George, holds two Bible studies monthly and continues to accept memorials, funerals and Wednesday evening pray meetings," Crittenden wrote.

The younger Crittenden wrote NBC 5 to suggest his parents be featured in the Tell Me Something Good segment of our morning show, NBC DFW Today.

"Their enthusiasm is infectious," said the son. "I am in awe of them."

A boy in Fort Worth has a big plan for the summer and it involves helping others. His project is "something good."

Miles Umscheid is collecting books for children who don't have them.

"He has always had a love of reading since an early age and even enjoys reading to his 10-month-old baby brother," said Matty Umscheid, his mom. "He told me wanted others to enjoy reading as much as does."

Miles, 7, wrote a letter and asked family, friends, neighbors and his baseball team to join him.

He's two weeks into his project and mom Matty said he has collected 419 books. His goal is 500.

Once he's done, Miles will donate those books to Safe Haven of Tarrant County and Cook Children's Medical Center.

"As his mom and dad, we are thankful Miles understands the idea of giving and receiving as well as spreading the gift of kindness. He often is shocked by the donations given and can see for himself that there are people willing to help others in the world. He also is getting the larger picture that one person can make a difference. I feel this is ever so important, especially in our world today," writes his mom.

Ask a 9-year-old boy what he wants for his birthday, and chances are pretty good the answer will be "toys".

A boy in Garland could have had lots of toys, but he decided he would spend his birthday doing "something good."

Kristin Patrick says several people asked her son Banning what he wanted for his ninth birthday.

"He said he wanted to help someone, help a charity but he said he didn't know how," she recalled. "I explained he could just ask people in the family for money and then he could donate or buy supplies for whatever charity he wanted to help."

Banning took his $300 in birthday money to buy items for In-Sync Exotics,  a rescue organization for big cats in Wylie. Mom Kristin says it's his "favorite place to visit right now."

Kristin says Banning spent a weekend buying then delivering "brooms, rakes, plastic totes, plastic trash cans, cleaning supplies, and toys for the cats." And, she says, he bought "Obsession cologne, the cats love the smell."

"He was very proud of his accomplishment and is talking about doing this again next year with the goal of more money," says Kristin.

And, Kristin is so proud of her son.

"What do I say about my child?", she told NBC 5, "He's a sweet kid with a heart of gold. He loves helping people and is always dropping whatever change he has into buckets to help animals, veterans, food banks, or whoever else is needing some help."

A teddy bear can go a long way in comforting a child.

Maggie Burnett, 11, knows it well. Mom Melony Burnett says "she suffered two concussions within a year of each other. She was in ICU both times and was given a prayer bear."

Her mom says the first time "she tripped, fell and hit her head."  Less than a year later, "she was on her scooter, had on her helmet, hit the gas instead of the brake, fell and hit her head again."

Maggie never forgot what that bear meant to her, and the Aledo girl now pays it forward through her bracelet business called Beads for Life.

She makes the bracelets, then sells them at fairs, events and where ever she can. She then takes 10% of what she earns and goes shopping. Not for herself, but for other children.

She buys teddy bears and donates them. This week, Maggie had enough money to buy and donate 17 bears to patients at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Her generosity and compassion amazes mom Melony. "I'm so proud of her for giving back," she wrote in an email to NBC5.
