Field trip

Hannah wanted me to go with her on her school field trip. So Sophia and I tagged along. Our first stop was Druber's. We love

When my children were just little, we used to go there and meet with other moms and their kids.

Hannah's kindergarten class is large enough that they were divided into two groups. While group #1 was shown the "how to's" of making donuts, Hannah's group had donuts to eat and pictures to draw.
After group #1 was done, they switched places.

They were shown how they make all the different kinds of donuts. All fashioned by hand.

Getting on the bus to go to the next stop.

Faith explained that they share the love of Christ to people who are in need.
Christ Himself was homeless His last years on earth. "The foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head." Matthew 8:20

Each child brought a box of cereal to share with the families who stay at the shelter.

"Christ came into the world not only to offer salvation, but to show us a new way of life . . . a life defined by love, humbleness, selflessness, sacrifice and service. Then, He tells us if we want to follow in His steps, we must deny ourselves, take up His cross and follow Him . . . we must live our lives as He did . . . outward focused. Christ’s body was broken and spilled out for others; now we are to present ourselves as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1) . . . we are to become His hands and feet. Christ calls each of us to be His representative to a lost and dying world, to offer them hope and a new way of life."

Thank you, Hannah, for inviting me to go along with you!

What a great field trip. I've enjoyed going with my little ones, too.
