YM/YW service scavenger hunt

The youth had a service scavenger hunt this week for their joint activity. They practiced their missionary skills and went door to door asking for donations for the Spokane Valley Partners. They collected 10 boxes of food, 3 frozen turkeys, 7 boxes of clothes and blankets, and 2 boxes of toiletries. The people at the Spokane Valley Partners were amazed and very grateful. The kids were rewarded with great feelings inside and of course donuts!

Garret's new room

Garret really wanted a bigger bed so we took apart his loft bed and sold it on Facebook Marketplace.  Then we bought him a new mattress and bed set.  Garret helped me put his new bed set together.

Garret's 6th grade AAU basketball season

Garret is playing AAU basketball again this year.  His team is the Bullets.  His coaches are RJ Del Mese and Brandon Florence.  The players on his team are Gavin Zehm, Jack Del Mese, Jack Florence, Quinn Derzay, Cameron Cantillana, Jaeger Grimsby, Trevor Dunham, Brandon Spunich, and Garret. 
In Garret's 2nd game of the season, he had a season high of 18 points.  He played awesome! He also had a bunch of steals.

Scouting for food

Garret is now a Boy Scout so he got to go and help pick up the food for scouting for food.  (The cub scouts drop off the bags the week before and then the scouts go the next week and pick it up.)

YW Evening in Excellence

I was in charge of YW Evening in Excellence.  We had a speaker (my mom, she said she was bored so I asked her to speak), sang a song, and the girls shared a goal they had accomplished and what they had learned from it.
