A couple of months ago Chad and I sat down to discuss some family issues. We talked about goals we had for our family and brainstormed ideas for areas we thought we were falling short in. Then we drew up a family contract for each member of the family to sign. I wish I could report that we have followed through with every part of that contract...I can't. However, we had agreed to make an effort to participate in more family service projects and this weekend we got the opportunity to do just that!
Our church has really made it easy for us as they have organized several family service projects for the fourth Saturday of each month. We chose to go to a local pregnancy resource center and help out there for a few hours. Most of the woman were organizing the clothes closet, assembling baby baskets for expectant mothers, and making no-sew fleece blankets. I was so happy that the woman who worked there was so flexible with us and kept the kids busy with many small projects that they could handle.
The kids unloaded light boxes, organized a toy room, bookshelves, and a broom closet. They sorted shoes to find matches and finally we made about a 100 or so small baggies with little rubber babies in them the exact size and replica of 12 week old babies in the womb.
I did leave our two littlest at home but even H3 was a big help.
