Super Heroes of Service Report

Last month's challenge for the Super Heroes of Service was to give some toys away.  

Rex and I sorted through all his toys and loaded up a box.

We ended up taking the box to D.I.  I wanted to take it to a shelter or someplace similar, but every web site for shelters said they accept new toys.  I was a little bummed, but they will still do something good.  Anyhow, here are the boys, ready to load up their toys.

It was fun to work with Rex, explaining that we can share what we have with others who might not have what we have.  He was pretty willing to give up some toys when I explained it.  Plus, it was really nice to scale things down.  Sometimes I wonder what it'd be like to live in pioneer times when kids didn't have boxes full of toys with light up buttons and music, but that's a whole different post :)

This month's Super Heroes of Service challenge is to do the "Good Deed Advent."  We are really excited to do this another year.  Some of the activities are really easy and don't take much time.  I am looking forward to having Baden participate more this year, since he's a little older this time around.  You can change the activities to suit your situation.  The idea is to just do something small everyday till Christmas.

Did any of you clear out some toys last month?  I'd love to hear about your experiences!  Thanks for reading.
