Wednesday

Yesterday I accompanied Abbott's third grade class to a food bank (Northwest Harvest); one of a series of trips as a community service project. We bagged rolls of toilet paper and diapers in order to make them available to give away. Abbott liked this trip even more than the last one, 'because this time it didn't make me hungry' (last time the work involved food). I have lots I'd like to tell you about the day, but I'm going to have to leave it at saying it was an incredibly positive, memorable trip. I've injured my right middle finger - sliced it on a tin can - and typing is quite difficult for the time being.

What have you been up to this week? Hope you're having a good one. xoxo

Sorry to hear about the cut; they can be nasty. You and your family are always so active and doing interesting things. Yesterday I went to the theatre to see a performance Shakespeare's sonnets which was strange and wonderful and I'm excited about my brother's visit on Friday as we haven't seen each other since Christimas.

Sorry to hear about your finger. It's so nice to be active with our families. A post about what I've been up to will be posted once I'm done with this comment, so come on and see. Wish you a wonderful week.

It's good that the school involves kids in community projects. Hope your injury heals soon, Lecia!

I love that the next generation is getting involved and more importantly exoped to the fact that there are alway those less fortunate than us, no matter where you land on the social ladder.

What a great opportunity for the children. Our will not let children under 14 participate.

Finger injuries are so bad because you are aware of them all day long.

On a side note, those diapers are awesome. I use the same ones sold as the Diapers.com store brand. And they work better than Huggies and Pampers. So they are getting great diapers. Which is a comforting thought when it comes to little ones.

That's a great idea for a class trip. Hope your finger heals.

I'm catching up my blog reading - stopping by favorite places. So sorry about the cut. Hope it heals quickly.

I had a bit of a giggle...every year we cook a turkey or two for our church's local mission Thanksgiving dinner, and my entire family complains that I make them hungry with that act!
