So Proud


So last month my son did a food drive for his 6th birthday, collecting food for the local food pantry rather than gifts. He collected 224 lbs. of food and $20.00 - much more than we had expected. Our local paper featured him in a story twice and since then the food pantry has had many children doing the same for their birthdays. Of course we are so proud.

On top of all of this, we received a letter shortly after the first article, from one of our State Senators who wanted to meet our son after reading in the paper about what he had done. So we went to the Capitol Building last week and he got to meet Oregon State Senator Jackie Winters and have his picture taken with her on the Senate floor. I think he'll think it is a big deal when he is older and better understands, but he was proud!
