Just popping in for a quick post tonight! Hope your week is going great...mine is off to a FAST start...but that is becoming the norm around here! LOL!
Have you ever filled a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child? Want to know more? Here's a link to their website:
I just love doing this each year and have been involved for a few years now. This year, our church youth group is also filling shoeboxes...can't wait to see how many we collect!
For the first time, I took my boys shopping with me for gifts for the shoeboxes this year. Why had I not done this before??? They really enjoyed picking out items & they had some great ideas!
Here are a few pictures taken the night we packed our boxes...it just makes you feel so good to know that you are making a difference for a child :o)
Joel tries to concentrate on his homework in the background while Jeremy gets organized...
Leave it to Joel to clown around...
Joel is very proud of his box of gifts...color coordinated in green :o)
So if you are looking for a fun family project, Operation Christmas Child is perfect! The kids will love it!
Thanks for stopping by! Take care!
