- Skittles learned about the 4 branches of the military in Trail Life. Then they met a veteran of Operation Desert Storm.
- Twizzler learned about bicycle safety. Then the kids all went on a ride around the parking lot with their leader. They used all the proper hand signals.
- Hershey brought me a book and said, "Read me." We read, "How Do Dinosaurs Count to Ten" about 3 times... It is his favorite book right now. He likes to name the toys in the pictures, "boon" (balloon), "truck, ball, block, sock, and choo-choo" Truck, block, and sock all sound the same.

Little Box, Big Miracle
After church today we went to the Dollar Tree and filled shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The boys filled their boxes with; bubbles, fun socks, stationary and markers, games, magic wash cloths, cars, a sock monkey, and of course some candy. They were so proud and told everyone shopping in the store that it only costs $7 to ship a box around the world and into the hands of a child who probably won't get any other toys for the entire year. It is a good reminder to them of just how blessed they are while they are flipping through toy catalogs and picking out things for their wish lists.
