The homeschool coop that my children have been involved with during this school year put together a carnival, which was Friday night. The kids spent part of the year planning it, and the proceeds were given to one of our families to help them with the cost of adopting a child from China. Everything at the carnival was donated or lent or homemade, and it came together quite nicely. All who attended had a great time!
I love being part of a community that comes together and actively supports one another! I also love that my kids are learning what it means to be a part of a community and what it looks like when you give back to that community. We had such a good time and learned some valuable life lessons through this experience.
