Thomas did a really dumb thing and got caught yesterday. And then he lied about it. And then I overreacted. But we're friends again. Brennan took this photo of us yesterday after school.
A number of local friends are doing a "40 Bags in 40 Days" Lent project and I've gotten on board even though I'm not Catholic and don't normally give up anything for Lent. I think this project makes a lot of sense though.
You give away a bag of stuff every day for 40 days. It doesn't matter what size the bag or if you trash it, give it to Goodwill, or give it to a friend. Since I'm a natural weeder-outer, and it's time for some serious Spring Cleaning, this seems like an easy thing for me to be a part of!
The boys were a huge help for our first bag today. Their school is collecting shoes for Haiti. They cleaned out the mudroom closet and found 5 pairs of shoes they can no longer wear. We bagged them and they have taken them to school today for Haiti. Always great when the kids can be a part of the process!
