I took these pictures on Friday night before and at the trunk-or-treat at Kenny’s school.

Have you ever thought about sponsoring a child or adult in need?
The president of CFCA walked 8000 miles between December 2009 and June 2011 to bring attention to families in poverty. He would like to have 8000 children sponsored, one for each mile he walked. If you would like to help him reach his goal and make a difference in a child’s life, you can go HERE to get started or just to get more information.
I can attest to how wonderful the sponsorship experience is. We’ve been sponsoring Ivan from Colombia since 2009. It’s one of the best things we’ve ever done. We just received his Christmas card last week, complete with a recent picture. He’s just adorable and it’s been great to see how he’s grown throughout the last two years.
There are so many WONDERFUL organizations out there but here are two of the top reasons why we chose to sponsor a child through CFCA:
2. I live in Kansas City so I love that CFCA is based here.
Think about it:)
Eric ran the Kansas City Marathon on October 15th!
It was funny because, for the first week following the race, he swore that he would never run another marathon. Then, once the pain receded, he changed his mind and said that he wants to do another one. I think it’s kind of like having a child. You kind of forget how painful it actually was after a while.
4 = the number of games the kids had on Saturday.
We went from Luke’s soccer game to Kenny’s football game to Kenny’s two soccer games.
- Luke is getting so good at being aggressive in soccer games. He didn’t score a goal but he came this close two different times.
- Kenny was the QB for part of his football game. His team finally had their first win.
- Kenny’s soccer team is really good. They won every game last season. Our entire team moved to a different league this season (along with the majority of the teams we played against in the past). They’ve lost two games this season (including one on Saturday) but I think it’s good that they did.
I went with Luke’s class to the Beanstalk Children’s Garden for their first field trip. It was also Luke’s first bus ride. The little stinker didn’t even sit with me. I had to sit by myself in the front while he sat with his friend A.
… you’re really excited about your new refrigerator.
Seriously, I’m really excited that we can actually stand our water bottles and pitchers up while filling them. And the refrigerator has a smart diagnosis system where if something is wrong with it, we can just hold our phone up to the sensor and it will relay information over it. Gotta love technology.
