I wanted to send out a thank you to Michelle Hovestadt who presented her wicked cool deals at our Valentine's tea on Feb 10th. Although I was reading and crafting with the children, I did try to keep an ear out for any new money saving tips. The information was fantastic and the children were great. We will try to have another event for mothers soon.
Another thank you goes out to all the people who donated mittens to our mitten tree. I am taking them to the Daily Bread's clothing closet tomorrow March 2 (which is Dr. Suess's birthday by the way). The preschoolers had a wonderful idea to start a mitten tree after reading the story The Mitten Tree by Candace Chrisiansen. Their selfless idea of helping other children helped to generate a whole bag of mittens which will keep other children warm this season and next.
One more thing I'm thankful for - Spring is right around the corner! Don't forget to spring your clocks ahead on Sun. Feb. 13.
