Merry Christmas part 2: Face/LA

The FACE/LA homeschool kids have an annual craft sale in December. Here some of the Friday Homeschool kids sell their homemade soap and scupley pens.

Below that one you can see Connor and some of the teens putting together holiday stockings for the homeless. We put things like shampoo, cough drops and nutrition bars in each one, along with the other new sock in the toe. It's tied it with a ribbon and a recycled card and each family that contributed stuff gets to take a few home. You leave them in your car and hand them out to people in need as you travel the city. It's a great way to get kids involved and has provoked some good conversations about politics and values in our family.
