Volunteering for Thanksgiving

We had planned on volunteering this morning at the food bank, committing to it about a month ago. On one hand I was sorry since this was the first black belt test at our karate studio. The first set of students going through, and I’d like Delaney to see it. However there are a few kids he’s trained with and fallen behind over the last year as we’ve been busy, so I was worried about that.

We headed down, minus Kendall since she was more interested in going with Mom to see friends. We’ve been homebodies quite a bit over the last month or so, and I didn’t argue. We’ll have lots of time to volunteer as my aim is to get there once a month.

It turned out that were weren’t even needed. There were about 10-12 people today, usually we’ve only see 3-4 other people out there helping. Still it was nice to help out, and Delaney did a great job of finding things to do. He also entertained a little girl that was about 3 for awhile, playing with her on the playground.

Now a little downtime for Delaney and a little work for me before Delaney’s birthday party this afternoon.
