Extra info for The Admiral. The David Robinson Story
David and his brother and sister were also expected to attend church and Bible study. When he was a baby, David’s mom would leave him in the church nursery. But when he was three years old, he began staying with her during the services at least some of the time. If he misbehaved in church, she corrected him. She thought, If he can’t sit through a service for an hour or two, how will he sit still in kindergarten? Unless she had to work, Mrs. Robinson attended church every Sunday, and she always took her children with her.
But two days after they arrived, the ice storm finally came. The storm was so bad that only emergency vehicles were allowed on the road. Mrs. Robinson got up that morning, took David out of his crib, and laid him on her bed. She left him there while she went into the kitchen to heat his bottle. While she waited for the bottle to get warm, she talked to her sister Jessie. David’s mother noticed that he had stopped crying, but she assumed he had fallen back asleep and kept visiting with Jessie. When David’s mother walked back into the room and did not see David on the bed, she quickly searched the floor, believing that he must have fallen off the bed.
Then she went to work! Six hundred dollars was a lot of babysitting. But Kim made it. She worked and saved, and finally, she bought the moped. She was so proud!

Every now and then, she even let David take it for a ride. He loved it! Kim kept the moped until she got her driver’s license and was able to drive the car. Then she decided to give the moped to David for his birthday.
