This summer I will once again be taking care of my sisters children on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons. Since I'm with them for the entire day on Tuesdays, I like to plan our outings for that day. We're still working on our list of fun things to do.
This year I'd like to try something new on Wednesday afternoons. Since the kids are getting older, I want to introduce them to volunteering. As children (and adults) often do, they get caught up in the latest gadgets or the coolest pair of sneakers that they HAVE to have. I want to show them that there's more to life than things.
First on our list will be an afternoon at Cradles to Crayons. If you don't know about them, check out their website by clicking here. I like the idea that all four of us can donate our time. And it's really fun!
I have to admit that I'm coming up empty as far as other places to volunteer. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Keep in mind that the kids are 15, 8 and 6.
I'm hoping that we have a summer that's just as fun as the past few.
