Happy Dance!

So, here's a plan for this weekend folks:
  • On Saturday, take a morning jaunt to your favourite participating comic book store (find them here). Marvel at all the reading material you can get for FREE for your kids (yes, stuff even the most finicky reader will read ;-) Squeeze in the Kids Craft at Michael's Craft Store on the way home...
  • Then, on Sunday, start off with the Children's Read-Along in the AM at The Rocket and then head over to MUN Botanical Garden, to wander the paths, say hello to the ducks in the pond, see if you can spot a squirrel or a rabbit.... and don't forget to pop into the Three Cheers for Composting Family Fun Program while you are there. If you still have time, swing by the Reid Centre in Mt. Pearl for the Crime Prevention Family Fun Day!
  • Don't forget to have Mexican for supper on Sunday as it is Cinco de Mayo!
In the week ahead, there are a few items worthy of note as well:

  • there is an online auction in support of Brooke Gidge (7 yr old with Leukemia who hopes to raise $10K for The Janeway!) - bidding has already begin and is open until early evening May 7th. Find it as Brooke's Buddies Silent Auction on Facebook
  • and a couple of presentations of interest to parents: 
    • on Monday- "Kids Have Stress Too"
    • on Wednesday- how children acquire narrative language skills and the role parents play

Here is the short & sweet list. Details as always are in the calendar.
