Heifer Village

Today we went to the Heifer International Center with our playgroup! I was under the impression they had animals you could pet, but they didn't. The kids still had a great time regardless. The whole center was very hands on and informative. I can't wait to take Addi back in a few years when she can understand a little better. The whole idea of the program is so neat. They want to end world hunger and poverty. It's all about providing sustainable income for those in need. Like they give a cow to someone, then they can take the offspring of the cow to their neighbor's and so on and so forth, and also use the products of said animal to sell and get more animals to continue the cycle.






After we got done there, we went to Chikfila for lunch. I got turned around a couple of times, was late getting there, and then Addi threw a giant fit once we got there. Stress!!! We ended up leaving early and Addi is taking a good nap right now.

I can't end this post without mentioning those affected by the horrible tornado in Joplin. SO many lives were lost and many homes were destroyed. I can't stop thinking about them and I encourage you to pray for them, and those in the path of the storm tonight. I am so ready for this terrible weather to be over!




Be safe tonight!

  2. Okay, Krystal and I went on a walk through the gardens and such after we ate, and a fake plum fell out of my stroller! I left it there cause I didn't know what to do, and this guy comes running up yelling "ma'am, you dropped your plum!!!!"

    Sorry we didn't go to the 'fil A, I had 3 errands to run and didn't want to add a 4th stop with the 2 chitlins.
