Yesterday, our family went on a shopping adventure to bless a very special group of kids in our community. This month, Champions For Kids is partnering with Odwalla juice in a SIMPLE Service Project to round up some new or gently-used sports/outdoor equipment and donate it to a children's organization. Our family was blessed to be able to participate!
I was recently made aware of a sweet girl in our community who has opened a daycare in her home and was in need of some fun things for the kids to enjoy playing with outside. I contacted Haley and she gave me a few ideas for things her daycare kids would have fun with!
My husband and I loaded up the crew and we all headed to Walmart for some Odwalla juice and outside items to give to Haley's daycare. We usually participate in some sort of service project at Christmas time, as well as when the opportunity arrives throughout the year. It just occurred to me, however, that we did not do anything in this way this last Christmas so I'm glad we have the chance to do this now!

|She also specified butterfly nets. Cainan and Elisha found some high up on this display.|
I had never purchased Odwalla before; and the kids, knowing that this time we were shopping for others, asked me to please buy them some next time I go grocery shopping! It looked so good!
