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.

It shows them how important you think their education is and it gives you lots of chances to get extra hugs!

I’ve said it before but I get to see so much of the fun at Amara’s school by volunteering. One good adventure often leads to another. It all started back in April at Open House and Book Fair. The Book Fair ran all that week for the students and they always have it open during Read the Rest

Friday was my 4th Jog-a-thon. It was Amara’s 5th but I missed the one when she was in Kindergarten. Since then I have gotten more involved each year and each year, I have had more fun. This was the best one yet. We got lucky again and had wonderful weather. It was a bit cool Read the Rest
