Sharing the Love

Last Thursday our home school students took thank-you cards, cookies, hot chocolate and a great big bag of stuffed animals to the Atlantic Police Department.  Chief Green welcomed us and told the
 kids they would distribute the toys to children who participate in Shop With a Cop.

 This morning the kids donated about 25 children's books to the Cass County Memorial Hospital and Atlantic Medical Center.  The books will be distributed throughout waiting rooms. 

We also took a trip to Heritage House where the children visited with 
some of the residents and wished them a Merry Christmas.

A box of 20 pillowcase dresses sewn by our homeschoolers was put in the mail to go to 
Little Dresses for Africa.  Based out of Brownstown, Michigan, the organization
 distributes dresses and shorts to children in orphanages all over the world.

Next Thursday morning starting at 9:30 the children will read books and play with children at the Ann Wickman Center and the preschool classrooms in our building.  We will also be making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to send over to Omaha with one of our parents who goes on Fridays to help out the homeless there.  We will finish off the morning with a good old-fashioned Christmas party!  
Tina and I are planning party games, treats and music!  See you then :-)
