Media Center (also known as library) at my kids school. I have signed up to help out every Tuesday from 8.15am until 10am. (This may end up seeming like a mad idea but I'll see how it all pans out) At least I am doing something with my time. I am waiting to hear from K's Kindergarten teacher as I said I would help out in the classroom too. (What am I doing?!)
'bus evacuation drill' and they were making sure all the kids got to where they should be. I ended up stood around waiting for about 15 minutes whilst the school finished the drill and the 'Media Center' teacher came back. As I stood waiting I saw my two little people walking down the corridor back to class together holding hands. Isn't that sweet. I know it won't last and I probably should have taken a picture.
Eventually all got back to normal and I was able to do what I volunteered for. I was shown how to process returned books and then where they go. Over the course of about 20 minutes loads of kids came in from their classes carrying big baskets full of books that were to be returned. I was there with 3 other volunteers and we got to work. I eventually left at about 10.40am which is a little bit later than the advertised time!
Whilst I was at the school I asked about what form I need to fill in to notify the school of the kids new address. I also mentioned the fact that as they will be living so close to the school, they will not be able to get a bus so will walk to and from school instead. I was told that everyone is entitled to travel to school by bus no matter how close they live to the school they go to! Seems a bit daft to me for my kids to get a school bus when we move as they could walk to the school in about 5 minutes. I suppose if the weather is bad and I don't want to walk in the rain/snow/gale force winds with them, then they have the option of getting a bus.
K is going to be registering to join the Girl Scouts on Thursday and I will try to get the required uniform for her on Friday as well as the patch adhesive for putting the patches on both her and Z's uniforms. So soon there will be, in no particular order: swim lessons at the Monon Center, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cheerleading, PTO Volunteering.
Is there anything else we could be doing that I have not yet discovered?! (We will also have moving home, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas to deal with soon!)
Well that is enough for today. I am off to get dinner ready for tonight. Slow cooker indian chicken stew.
