Let's move on.
1. The Omnipod insulin pump system is f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s-i-t-y and I promise to devote a couple of posts highlighting our transition from MDI to podding.
2. Schooling the kids at home is f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s-i-t-y and I promise to devote a couple of posts highlighting our roller coaster of a learning curve. (with pictures of the school room!)
So, what made me jump back on the computer to dust off the old blog?
Today our lesson plans called for service. A field trip! And two other very awschum homeschooling families joined us in volunteering for Meals from the Heartland.
We signed up to serve a 2-hour shift of food packaging at HyVee Hall in Des Moines. This is their annual fight against hunger, 4 day event. Their goal is putting together and boxing up over 4 million meals to be shipped to countries in need.
Our team of 10 Hunger Fighters. (I am the photo taker and the other helper had run ahead ~ so excited!)
Some of the displays set up on our way into the convention hall. They artistically recreated tent cities.
The top photo is what the food packaging area looked like BEFORE the volunteers came in, and the bottom photo is after hundreds of hunger fighters appeared for their shift.
Today I am so grateful to be called to serve . . . . and to have the opportunity to do it with my kids!
