Our main project this year has been working on our Genealogy badge. The older children made a Genealogy notebook with pages for each family member. Each family made a family tree also. I believe this will be an ongoing project for some of us, as we learn more about our family histories!
In November, we participated in a shoebox gift program. I particularly love this program because it is run by a missionary family in Mexico, and they take photos of each and every child receiving their shoebox gift! It is so special for our children to be able to see the children who their gifts go to. It makes it a little bit more personal for them. This year I took photos of my children with their gifts before we mailed them, so it would be easier to pick them out. Here are the "before and afters"! We decided to use bags this year rather than boxes, because they fit better in the shipping box and were a bit cheaper on postage.
