Earning Service Points

The Boy needed to earn a few more service points for National Junior Honor Society so we decided to go clean up in and around one of the neighborhood parks and the walking trails that lead to it. The Girl had to come along with us so she joined in to help out. 


Wow! I never would have guessed there would be that much trash! (It was mix-up crazy clothes day at The Girl's school. That's why her outfit looks so crazy.)

Helping Out

The Boy almost had all the service points required for National Junior Honer Society. Almost, but not quite. So we started brainstorming more activities he could do around the community.

We planned to clean up trash in a park one day.

He spent one morning shoveling sidewalks in our neighborhood after a snowfall.

He volunteered to be in the Denver Parade Of Lights (this was a school provided service opportunity).

He still needed more points so Mr. LH suggested he help out at the upcoming Student Show for the film school. 


The Boy sorted and passed out programs to students and supporters coming to watch the show. Then he was able to sit back, relax and enjoy the films himself.

It's a treat for The Boy to be able to go. The Student Show usually falls on a school night which keeps both "Pickles" at home.
