4H Drones, 4H Thanksgiving Box Packing and Operation Christmas Child

We have had a busy couple of days! Here is what we have been up to....

On Thursday night we played with the Drone Discovery Project with our 4H group. We had a lot of fun watching the gliders fly! Those things fly really well! And they are made out of foam plates so they were light with a penny on the top for a bit of weight. The kids were able to decipher some physics in all this too which was great!

On Saturday we spent a little bit of time helping to pack food boxes for Concerned for the Hungry. These will be delivered in the coming week to families in need to help with Thanksgiving dinner. You line up outside the school gym then go in one at a time to wheel a cart around with a box which is filled by the people inside. This way things move along and all of us do not need to know what goes into each box.

Tonight while waiting on dinner we finished packing up our shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. We love doing this every year and bumped it up a box this time! 2 girl boxes and 2 boy boxes for kids in the 10-14 years old age range.

And now I think I am ready for bed! More to do tomorrow....
