Let the fundraising meetings and activities begin. My daughter's 7th grade class will be going to Washington DC in the spring of her 8th grade year. I know what not to do. Based on my experiences with my older daughter a few years ago. Don't try to schlep Krispy Kreme donuts the first Saturday in January. Or lock the keys in your van. Running. With the van containing dozens of donuts waiting to be delivered.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 ESV
