I am going to go backwards here. Our family participated in Keep Rio Rancho beautiful this year. Troop 714 cleaned up Rio Rancho Elementary school. This is where our kids have gone to school, so the kids took pride in cleaning it up. After the project we went to Haynes park for a BBQ and prizes. We won some Little Ceasars pizza and some free swim passes. What is so funny about this picture is Anna is still so afraid of anything in costume. The dude with the big nose standing next to Soren didn't go over well with her.
Logan got to hang out with some of his friends. Sariah was very cute and I loved teasing him about it.
This was while we were working at the school. Both the older girls wore their Young Marine clothes. The rest of us, our scout uniforms.
Cleaning up made my kids aware of what they do with their own garbage. It made them sad that there was so much trash in the rose garden. I hope this experience will stay with them for a long time.
