I had contacted our city to see if there were any parks that we could go and clean up. Our city was so excited that we were looking to do this. They checked to see which parks could use some tender care and then let us pick which one we wanted to go to work on. We decided to do the one that was located by our school. We knew we would not be able to get the whole park done, but we know that we were making a difference by working on part of the park.
Jack was pretty excited to be able to use this tool to suck up some of the leaves in certain areas and then bring them over to the piles we were forming for the city to come and pick up on Monday. There was quite a feeling of accomplishment on this day. And Chad and I were both so proud of our kids for helping learn this valuable life lesson of giving back to where you live....

School is going great for the kids! They all have amazing teachers and they are learning sooo much already. We look forward to all that they will be experiencing with school as the year goes on!
Jack is knee deep in cub scouts stuff! He is working on badges and special belt loops. It is fun to see his passion for this. I am so glad we encouraged him to join cub scouts! And Chad is now the Den Master (I am sure the name is different and he will correct me on this). It is fun to see them work on all of the activities together. Good father son time together. :)
Hope all of our friends and families are enjoying the fall. Before we know it there will be snow on the ground..... :)
