After completing the start of “Pennies of Time” adventures this week, I wanted to ask my boys about what they thought of their daily adventures with service. This was our first conversation of the day.
An Interview with a Five Year Old
Me: What do you think of us doing the “Pennies of Time” adventures?
Five Year Old: Happy.
Me: Why does it make you happy?
Five Year Old: Because it is giving things to people that they need.
Me: What happens to people when we do a “Penny of Time” adventure?
Five Year Old: They feel good because are helping them. We are helping them with something that they need.
Me: Which “Penny of Time” adventure have you liked the most so far?
Five Year Old: The VENDING MACHINE!
Interview with a Three Year Old
Me: What do you think of being nice to others?
Three Year Old: Not be mean, and not fight, and not punch, and not fight. It was good to give water at school.
Me: Was it hard to do the “Pennies of Time” adventures?
Three Year Old: No, it was fun!
