--First solo teaching gig today.
It’s an “indirect” arrangement so not a whole lot of preparation other than having a display and passing out corresponding informational handouts. Will also being giving kids a free giveaway. We have water bottles, frisbees, pencils, etc.
--Hoping to network. The agency I’m doing the Back to School Fair for also does a monthly food pantry/distribution. My understanding is it is an all day event, every month. That would be a very easy way to get a lot of easy hours in that count toward my teaching time.
--Meeting with the coordinator of the church food pantry in Aurora later this afternoon. Hoping to get a few different things set up there.
--My mom’s surprise birthday went well. We had a little bit of a glitch because she was outside when I got there and I couldn’t get her in the house. My brother and River pulled up but River hid in the truck and my brother came in to shoot the shit like he had no idea what was going on. My mom didn’t notice the rental car driving by slowly (as I’m texting my sister to stay away!) with the rest of the gang inside. Once we got my mom in the house everyone else showed up and were waiting outside to surprise her.
--I broke the #7 candle in two when I was trying to get it out of the package but I was able to carefully arrange it on the cake so you couldn’t tell. When my mom blew out the candle the 7 broke in two. No one knew it was broken previously so it made for a really good laugh.
--My sister is in hysterics over Gavin’s mustache. I sent her pictures before so I don’t know why she’s so surprised. Maybe it’s just more pervy in person.
