Volunteering

One of the things I really enjoy is volunteering at Amara’s school. It gives me a wonderful opportunity to experience the excitement behind the scenes. I hope as you read these you will think about volunteering or that you will consider joining your local PTA and giving some of your time to your grandchild’s school. It shows them how important you think their education is and it gives you lots of chances to get extra hugs!

It was a great day to be a cat. I had been looking forward to playing the Cat in the Hat ever since I played him last year! Last year the PTA had celebrated Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’s birthday in a big way. They had received a grant from Lowe’s to help upgrade Read the Rest

I know I am behind in my blogging (and my reading) but we have been busy having fun! Someday I am going to get caught up! Last year the PTA hosted their 1st Annual Mother and Son Event. I didn’t attend. It was a good thing I hadn’t volunteered as it was the day after Read the Rest
