We are Thankful

This past Friday at school, Avery and her class got a chance to help some children who don't get a big Thanksgiving meal.  A team from Servants With a Heart came to the school and let the children help pack bags of food.  They made meals from rice and dehydrated vegetables that when boiled, will provide six servings of food to a family.

Luckily, they were doing this when I went to pick Avery up, so I got some quick pics with my phone.  Everyone in the room (including me) had to wear a hairnet.  Avery's job was to weigh the bags and add a bit more or remove a bit to get it on target.  Then she handed the bag to Lily to be sealed up.

It was nice for them to learn about and get a real chance to help other children around the world.  It's never too early to learn about giving back and realize how lucky we are this Thanksgiving.
