Day 139 - Helpin' Out

Our church is gearing up for it's annual Yard Sale and this afternoon, we went over and spent some time helping prep the sale items.  I think it's a good lesson in Community Service to help out and so each kid was put to work!

Nothing like the satisfaction of a job well done!
