I just wanted to congratulate you for thinking of a mother/son volunteer activity. Our lives are so busy that finding time to truly do things together is scarce. This is really a wonderful opportunity for our sons to really ‘do as we do’ rather than just shipping them off to an activity on their own! I hope you do more of these.
When I arrived there were twenty women ranging from mothers of current sixth grade students to a mom of a recent graduate. It was chilly in the warehouse and the amount of apples to be processed was daunting but there also was a lot of laughter among the volunteers. One of the moms told me “we make volunteering fun!” Now I know where the boys learned this valuable lesson.
