I love sponsoring a child through Compassion
International. I know that they have a heart for
these children. They want to see them fed, clothed,
educated, and have adequate health care. More
importantly they work through local churches to care
for the children spiritually. I love how Compassion
advertises through their volunteer network which saves
the company money that can go directly to the
children! We love to read the letters from our
sponsored child as a family! This has been a great
way to introduce to our 3yr old son the fact that not
everyone in the world has material possessions, etc...
It is interesting to see how our son is incorporating
our sponsored child into his everyday language, thoughts, and prayers! What a great way to teach him compassion!
Great selection of stylish clothing. Business wear, business casual, casual, dressy whatever type of plus sized clothing you are looking for you can find it here. Sales accociates are friendly and very helpful. Prices are a little steep, but the quality of the clothing is very nice.
I love the kid's play area in Eagle Ridge Mall. My friend and I go up there together and one of us watches the kids while the other one shops. I was surprised at the variety of stores for this size area.
I have never been much of an arcade person, but I have to say that Starcade has many fun games to play. They have many interesting games I wouldn't expect in a town our size... 360 degree video game, bumper cars, riffle shooting game... My favorite is playing Ice Hockey.
I was surprised to find out that not all Wal-Mart stores are created equal... This one is satisfactory, but they have a hard time keeping things in stock. Sometimes they keep something in stock, then stop carrying it all of the sudden. The best day to shop here is Monday when they are re-stocking. Monday is also the best day to get discounted bakery items, you can really find some great deals!
Anytime we have a problem with our glasses the people who work in the Vision center are quick to help and very friendly. My husband is hard to fit for glasses, and is pretty picky about his frames, but they worked patiently with him for about an hour helping him find the perfect pair for him.
My husband is a pastor and loves the fact that Lighthouse has a great selection of theological books for his studies. As parents we LOVE the children's play area, and so does our 3 year old son. I wish all stores had a play area, it makes shopping so much easier! They have a good selection of t-shirts, gifts, cards, music and even furniture!
We have visited TD Waterhouse Centre to see two Orlando Magic basketball games. I was stressed out the first time we went because I was afraid it was going to be a headache to find the building and to park, but compared to other downtown areas I've visited, this was a snap. It is even easier on weekdays when you can park right in front of the building for only $5!!! Before the game they set up several blow-up slides and jumping activities for the kidos which my 3yr old son loved.
The people I have encountered in this bank have been very friendly and warm. They treated me like I was a dear friend right from the first meeting. They were also very patient with our 3 year old hyperactive son, which helped to put me at ease!
We love this bank! Everyone we've delt with has been kind and friendly. We have not had to wait in long lines. We also love how easy it is to bank on-line with them!
