Day 2 had a little bit of a lesson for the kids this morning that I wasn’t expecting. The card told them that tonight they are delivering the cookies to their neighbors and had fun little holiday themed bags to put them in. Their initial response was “What?! That’s not fair, those are our cookies. This calendar is supposed to be for us!” So, without even meaning to, this opened the opportunity for us to have a talk about the upcoming holidays and what that meant to us, about giving unconditionally and making others happy! They reacted great and are now excited to deliver cookies today, so Sioux Falls neighbors: You are welcome 🙂
They are even talking about wanting to clean out their old toys they don’t use anymore and donating them to kids who would enjoy playing with them!
