25 Days of Giving::December 2
Yesterday:: The kids were asked to complete the simple task of making lunch for the family. I had thought an easy task at the beginning would be best. Turns out that cooperation with siblings is more difficult than they (or I) had anticipated. Embree and Reeves chose to make macaroni and cheese. There was much bickering over the interpretation of the recipe, a few panic attacks, and several "quits" by both before lunch was finally served. Luckily, the house didn't burn down and cooperation, albeit hard won, was accomplished. I think that was probably the best lesson of yesterday's task. Perhaps my overall wish for this whole experiment is generosity toward each other. Sometimes that is rare.
Today's task:: Buy and deliver angel tree gifts.
