The school sent home a letter from a Marine asking children to draw a picture about Toys for Tots and that they would be selecting 2 kids from each grade to go shopping at Toys R Us (with a parent) for gifts for needy children. Delaney and I discussed this project and why it was important and she really wanted to participate. So we went to the website and we discussed how the program got started and what it does today and then we looked at pictures of Marine’s collecting and providing gifts. She then drew a wonderful picture that I wanted to share with everyone, because SHE WON. She is very excited and I am thrilled that she can participate first hand in the True Meaning of Christmas. We are going to have lots of fun tomorrow morning at Toys R Us. And I didn’t realize that the Marine who sent home the letter is the father of one of Delaney’s friends in her class (they actually sit at the same table together). So, tomorrow morning, Delaney and Samantha will be out helping other children have a wonderful Christmas! Great Job Delaney!
