Toys For Tots

Both of the kids' schools are collecting toys for Toys For Tots, so today we brought them to the store to choose one toy each that they would like to donate. Zoe didn't have any trouble with this at all, but it was tough for Landon to get a toy for someone else and not get one himself.


In the end he really surprised us though. Awhile back Landon won a $5.00 Target gift card when his name was drawn for bringing in box tops for his school. He remembered to bring his gift card today when we went to the store so, he used his card and a little bit of his own cash and bought another gift (a card game). I thought the deck of cards was something for himself, but he informed me that they were to also donate to the cause! I was amazed at his generosity as well as extremely proud!

That is so awesome! Big hugs to Landon it's difficult at that age. We used to do this with the boys. Probably should get back to doing it. I was thinking about donating coats since we seem to have more than we need.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
