Last Day of November
The kids picked up all the walnuts in the yard from our one lone walnut tree. They brainstormed about what they could do with the money once they sold them, that they could all enjoy together. We knew the profit would be pretty slim, $14 per 100lbs of hulled walnuts. Yikes!
Joe and I took the kids to collect walnuts at a friend's and my brother's. We had the back of our van loaded with many garbage bags full of walnuts. After selling them, the kids made $17! They had already decided they would use the money to buy items for Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes a ministry from Samaritan's purse that delivers shoe boxes filled with items to children all over the world effected by poverty, disaster or war. Joe and I helped them with extra money they needed to fill 2 shoe boxes but it was a great memory they made working together to bless other kids. We pray theses boxes will be an avenue for sharing the love of Jesus!
In case you missed it, Joseph and I finally got his first deer of the season! You can scroll to the bottom of my last post and watch the final video. It will definitely be one my greatest moments with Joseph as an 11 year old and maybe ever! Hunting with him was the most fun I've had in a long time.
