Operation Kindness Matters

It is very easy with summer vacation upon us for the kids and I to start getting short with each other and lose our tempers.  So much togetherness! Hahaha  I decided what we needed was a day to focus purely on others.  Thus, Operation Kindness Matters was born.  Each of the kids had "secret missions" to help make the world a kinder place.

We made tons of cookies and cards.

All 5 kids decorated each card.

A cute card my husband made for us to give out to people "just because."

Noel's first mission:  Leave a card and small gift for our postal carrier.

Rodney's mission:  Leave someone a free drink

We brought blankets and toys for the animal shelter and cookies and a thank you card for the people that volunteer there.

Our dentist is awesome to us!  We left his office cookies and a card.

We made cards for people in assisted living.  We gave them to the receptionist and asked him to hand them out to people that might need cheering up.

We handed out bubbles to kids at the park.

We met a real fireman and gave him cookies and a thank you card.

Each kid took $1 and hid it in the toy aisle of the dollar store.

Jacob hid a Books a Million gift card in a book at the store.

Isabella gave a lady with her dog at Petsmart a gift card to buy it some treats.

We remembered our favorite librarians!

We also adopted a soldier.  We have already heard from Sgt D and are thrilled to get to know him and send him care packages.  www.adoptaussoldier.org

At this point we came home exhausted but with smiles on our faces!
