|Audrey and I read the book Wonder together in October. What great timing that the movie came out in November! We took a mommy daughter date to see it and it was incredible!|
This little dude tries as hard as he can to do everything the big kids do. He succeeds most of the time!
For family home evening on Monday night we assembled snack packs for the children who beg for coins at the street lights. We were able to put together 25 packs to keep in the car and give away each day. It is sad to see so much need all around us, I am glad we can help in small ways. I'm also glad my kids have the opportunity to see poverty first hand. I know they recognize how blessed we are and they love to participate in serving others.
|Mitchell's office Christmas dinner|
|We set up a massive assembly line and with the help of friends filled all 300 bags in 2.5 hours!|
|The bags will be delivered a couple of days before Christmas|
Saturday we needed to get out of the house for a while so we took advantage of the Central American Games going on right now in Managua. It is basically the Central American Olympics. First we went to the Judo event but they had ended the tournament early so then we went to Fencing but they also ended early! Fortunately the track and field events were going on and we got to see some exciting events there. The kids especially liked the women's discus and the mens and women's 400m hurtles events. The women's 5K on the track was too "boring." *I liked it! It might have made me wish I was out there running with them if not for the stomach flu I was barely recovered from.
