I have been in a flurry of RAPTOR programs, Christmas shopping, general chaos.
Today, I did SEVEN back-to-back talks at a local elementary school. And I will be doing it again tomorrow. This school is in a rapidly growing community, and the kids I am talking to are all in the second grade. In this ONE school, there are 35 second grade classes. Marc, one of our board members, will be taking on Friday for me, so I should be able to speak for Christmas. It's tough to repeat the same talk seven times in a row. And keep it fresh. And keep an eye on the birds.
We do this every year at this school, and it's good money for RAPTOR, but I am SO TIRED.
Some of the kids today said they remembered me from other programs I have done around town. I have a troupe of mini-groupies!
Tomorrow night, after enlightening another 200 little minds, the girls and I will be going to the annual pre-Christmas shindig at my Aunt Kay's house. Click HERE to read about these wonderful women.
