Feed the Bug and Paint the House
It was a cold, cold day today. It was perfect weather to try out our new winter jackets that will keep us alive in -30 Celsius. It wasn't anywhere near that of course, but man was it chilly!!!
Today was Feed the Bug Day. It's a fun way for the students at various schools in the community to participate in a food drive for our local food bank. The students brought in their non perishables this week and stuffed all this......
Imagine 410+ students, teachers, and parents out in front of the school loading up Volkswagen Beatles and chanting "feed the bug!!!!". It was the best organized chaos ever!! The kids all had a blast and the fact that this school can donate and fill two bugs was amazing to me.
James' school fed their bugs yesterday....actually Hummers (much cooler for preteens) and I believe they filled three vehicles with food.
It was a real heartwarming activity on a cold day.
On the home front, Sean worked to finish painting the house before the anticipated snowfall this evening. It will be nice to have the house all one color finally.
