I looked at the calendar and my mouth dropped open. I have one starting school in a week and a half and two starting school in two weeks.
- Question #1: Where did the summer go?
- Question #2: How will I ever get everything done?
This is my 12th year of having a child in school. Longer if you count preschool. I should be more prepared. I should have the back-to-school engine running like a well oiled machine. But I’m disorganized. I lose track of dates. I get wrapped up in the here and now and lose track of what is ahead. Are you like me? Or are you super organized?
While I may be a little late to the game with buying back-to-school supplies, I’m the type of parent who is an advocate for my children and their schools. If my children have an issue in school, I will go to bat for them. The same goes for my children’s schools. I want to be an active participant in the school community.
Since my oldest daughter’s kindergarten days, there is one thing I have loved and that is volunteering. Whether it is chaperoning a field trip, cutting out red reindeer noses, or manning the bake sale table at a school fair, I want to be involved. But, I’ve also been in charge of scheduling those volunteers.
Recently, I was named as a VolunteerSpot Ambassador. I have been a part of VolunteerSpot since its inception and am excited to tell you about this fabulous organization.
