Update on the season of giving...

I took my last final yesterday and am finished with all of my prereqs for nursing school. Next step is to apply and take the entrance exam in January, then wait to see if I get in. Praying and hoping. 

Anyway, in the midst of all the school ending chaos, I am working with the kids on thinking of others and wanted to update what we did this week. 

The boys and I delivered the food/meals we purchased.

We were lucky enough to be able to donate some money toward a fund for cancer treatment for a friend's father. (and if you have a few extra bucks that you are looking to donate toward a good cause, here is the link to the fund.....

I provided snacks to my class before finals to show support and hopefully get everyone in a good mood. 

We pooled our money to give our tutor a gift card for the holidays.

The boys and I rang the Salvation Army bell in 45 degree, misty rain. We bundled up and the kids had a really great time. And thanks to the manager of Food King (the store where we were ringing) for bringing us some hot chocolate when we began, and to my mother for bringing us some more hot chocolate midway through our 2 hour shift.)

We shared the adoption of a child from the Salvation Army Christmas tree with my mother. She purchased the toys and items the little boy wanted and I purchased the clothes. Jansen helped pick out a jacket, 2 shirts, and 2 pairs of jeans. 

So far so good. I am going to be buying some toys for the drive at my husband's work in the next couple of days, and we are still working on a few other things. But now, I must clean my house as the Autism Specialist from the school district will be making a home visit this afternoon to help us out a bit. The last thing I want is for my house to be a total wreck when she gets here.
