One of the great opportunities the boys have now that they are being schooled at home is doing community service projects with our homeschool co-op. We have signed up to be a part of a group that goes to the Waterford Retirement Home at least once a month. For our first trip the residents invited us to play card games with them. Their two favorites games are "SkipBo" and "Phase 10". We had never played "SkipBo" before, but we love "Phase 10". When we arrived, the residents chose to play "SkipBo" so they taught them how to play. It was such a fun game that the boys asked to buy it so we could play here at home!
Here are a few pics that our project director took of our first trip:
The kids had so much fun and can't wait to go back. Me too!
