A Big Idea

We survived another busy week and I am looking forward to next week. There are no doctors or dentists apts on the calendar!!! And now I am knocking on wood!

Anyway, today was Mormon Helping Hands, a church community service day, and because of the age limit and a soccer game we couldn't go. So, we decided to have a Petersen Helping Hands event and weeded an elderly gentleman's yard. It was a lot of fun, even with some minor grumbling from the girls! While we were weeding and talking about how much fun it is to do service projects David came up with a great idea....We are going to start tracking family service hours and saving them up for a fun trip or something. For example, today we earned 6hrs and when we have say....50 hrs we will go to the zoo.

I'm really excited about the idea, and very impressed that David came up with it. We haven't talked to the kids about it yet and want them to be involved in deciding what to work for. I can't wait to see what they come up with!
