During the second week of school, the high school-er was asked to the Homecoming dance. She seems to be adjusting fairly well to the bigger crowds, more homework, but she mostly loves the later bedtime!
At the start of the school year we learned that the school our kindergartner attends had a vacancy on the PTA board for the VP of Special events. Without a person in this position, there was fear that many things the PTA wanted to accomplish this year would not happen. So I got to thinking, and decided it was something I wanted to do.
Once I was voted onto the board, I was tasked with pulling off the first Donuts with Dads this school ever held. With no previous event to take numbers from, I was kinda out on a limb. It turned out to be a smashing success! (Whew!) But me being me, I had to do a little thank you for the adults (there were some grandpa's there) who decided to show up that morning and make their Cool Spring ‘Penguin’ feel special.
Just a simple bag with a few golf tee’s (I know cliché, but…) and some candy. Since out mascot is a Penguin, I pulled out the only penguin stamp set I have and fell in love with it! I knew from the second I looked at it, this was perfect! I loved the child penguin riding the (in my opinion!) Daddy penguin. It embodied the bonding that this event gave our kids.
