Little Helping Hands

Austin has an organization called Little Helping Hands that puts on service projects that preschool and elementary school aged kids can participate in.  It's a great program that I'd heard, but had never coordinated figuring out the pretty competitive registration process.  Then I received an email that Trajan's school was sponsoring a project for the families at the school and knew that we had to do this!

This project was cleaning up a local playground.  This included picking up litter, doing some planting and wiping down the playground equipment.  Trajan and his best friend decided they wanted to wipe down the equipment and so that's what we did.

I also tried Chiron in a hip carry with a pocket sling for the first time and he did great and really enjoyed himself until he passed out.  Then the advantage of the kangaroo carry was obvious as he was then slumped over!

Seeing those pictures drives home that I really did cut off eight inches of hair that Thursday!
