Zoe got a lovely package in the mail yesterday that had self-adhesive jewels & googly eyes in it. This morning she made this picture of Daddy.
She has been home for a couple of days with me getting over a cold that we have been passing around. There seems to be a strep outbreak and there are coughs and runny noses galore at preschool. yuck!
I just need her to be healthy next week because hopefully I will be starting a new job soon...
hooray! I was offered [yes, offered] a job as a Kindergarten teacher at the Y's Kindergarten extended-day program. It is in a classroom at an elementary school 2 miles from our house [bike ride distance for sure]. I'll have about 11 kids from 10:30am - 3:30pm each day to teach after their regular kindergarten class ends in the morning. The best part is that the Y will reduce our preschool tuition and our Y membership will be free, too. And then they are going to pay me, too?! We are all super excited around here that perhaps Pete's paychecks won't be stretched so thin anymore. I'm waiting on the HR paperwork & orientation... patiently.
Speaking of the Y...
A photographer donated her time & skills to take pictures of the kids at preschool on Valentine's Day. The parents were then asked to make a donation to the Partners With Youth campaign in exchange for the photos. I think that they look amazing- especially since Zoe went to school with a terrible cold and cried all morning... She wore the cute outfit that Aunt Tammy just sent.
I made a $40 donation for a CD of all the pictures she took of Zoe. This is a 5x7 she printed. Perhaps you would also like to make a donation and I will send a copy of the CD or have a few of the photos printed for you?
