My husband and I got up at 3 am yesterday and hit Wal*Mart and Target for their great Black Friday deals. By 8:30 am, I was back home and ready to start my day again, this time with my girls. We spent the morning making lots of cards. We mailed nine Christmas cards to other homeschooled children around the world. We subscribe to a penpal list of homeschool kids and the moderator of this group randomly selected groups to mail cards to each other. One of the families lives with an hour of our old home! What a small world!
Later in the afternoon, we recieved a letter from my daughter's Sunday School teacher reminding her that they were collecting items for a soldier in Iraq whose family attends our church. On the list of items to send was stationary and blank cards. We made some more cards to send to him also.
After eating leftovers for dinner, we went to a nearby town for their Christmas lights parade. What a wonderful Black Friday we had!
