As the school year winds to an end, I am finding myself very busy with all the appreciation ceremonies for Teachers, PTA Volunteers, Class Mom's and Principal Appreciation Day, which for some reason is in a totally different week from the Teacher Appreciation Week. Last week was the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. It was in the school cafeteria and I opted not to go. The theme was country (or cowboy) I can't really remember, but I lack any sort of equestrian apparel so I decided to stay home. My neighbor wasn't going to go either, but she is a substitute at the school and so she was there on that day and they MADE her go, poor thing. I did receive a nice appreciation certificate in Boog's backpack the following day, name spelled wrong and all. I feel the appreciation!
Tomorrow is the only field trip of the year. I don't blame the teacher's for not wanting to take a bunch of 5 year olds out in public. I usually try to get my errands done during the day to avoid taking mine out. I'm going to go and help the 4 Teachers and their Aides and 100 Kindergartners have a good time at the park. Wish me luck?
