Recently Nan's new soccer team ran a fundraiser at a local event called Dozer Days! Our local Columbian covered it. The team sold bottles of cold water over the course of two days. Kat and hubby along with the other coaches spent countless hours getting it all ready to go. They're amazing.
It was such a great weekend as the girls on this new team had the opportunity to get to know one another even better. They ran around selling water, playing on the equipment and just having a wonderful time, oh, and they made some money for their team!!
Every year for the last 14 years we have done a 4th of July fundraiser for youth group. For 7 days we work ridiculous hours (our girls included) to raise money for our youth camp/conferences. We actually love it even though we are totally and completely wasted by the end.
I'm always amazed at how hard, or how little some people work. I know that at times I feel like I'm pushing and pulling my girls to get things done around home (they do it, but sometimes not joyfully), but when it comes to fundraising, or work parties, or helping others, they really jump to it and I see the real fruit of all our "training" over the years. They really know how to work hard.
