Fall Decor & Early Christmas

Just some Insta-photos of our walk today:

The boys collected things along the way. I usually end up washing their fabulous finds as they stuff them in their pocket, but today they created some home decor for the outside of our home. 

Grant placed his on the outside cafe table which was actually cute!

Jake proudly put his smack dab in the middle of the walkway to the front door. But he was certainly proud of himself! Let's home Eric notices it when he comes in late tonight! 

You know, sometimes it's nice to have some confirmation that your not screwing your kids up - that your raising them the right way with the right values. My oldest (who does not read my blog) has been saving up money for a couple of things from the American Girl catalog. However, when we received the Christmas catalog in the mail from Samaritans Purse, she immediately decided that her money would be better spent buying milk, blankets, soccer balls, and clothes for a needy families oversees. And that's just what she did. She poured out her rolled up, crumpled dollar bills and loose change and asked me to help her fill everything out. I'm so glad that she can decipher what is important in life and realizes the importance of compassion and service to others to show Jesus' love to others. 

I'm sure many of you are already familiar with the established non-profit organization Samaritans Purse as they are responsible for all those Christmas shoe boxes that are sent all over the world to needy children. They deliver the items to countries like China, Nepal, Kazakhstan, Russia, and many other countries. They really do a ton of great work. Check them out!
