Sneaky took selfies, put them on all of our "too many" (said Jim) electronics and then emailed James. We'll definitely remember him after he leaves!
I was in charge of my school's holiday help program again this year. I was the point person but we were a strong team of four that contacted the 85 families to come to Anoka's Fare for All event for holiday food. We focus on food because we realize kids will be home for 2 weeks without school lunches. Hopefully, this helps to stretch those holiday dollars.
Thanks to our faith partner each family went home with boxes of frozen meat, a box of produce, a box of dairy (milk, oj, eggs, butter), and then two walmart bags of nonperishables. We headed up a team of CRMS volunteers to help families with their vouchers, through the line, and then carry all the items to their cars. It was a busy, fast paced two hours!
It feels like a lot of work but I'm always glad to start the holidays giving to these families.
James has an iPod that he can use to text people with iPods or iPhones. One night I changed my contact information in his iPod to "Santa". I texted him and it looked like Santa had texted!
I took a screenshot from my phone.
James freaked out! And he was so honest that he deleted the texts so the kids on the bus wouldn't find the number.
That was good fun!
