On Monday, President's Day we wanted to do something so we decided to go to "This is the Place" park. The only problem was that although we have had the best weather for the winter this day it was cold and windy so we went into the visitor's center looked around for a while and then decided that we would be miserable if we walked around the park so we left. K and C came up to spend some time with us so it was a win just because we got to see them.
We ended up just going to Del Taco for lunch, Savers to look for deals, and then to NPS (Nice Place to Shop as my sister calls it). We try to go and get bargains at NPS about once a month and we had already gone for this month but the girls needed some food so we went. So it was a random silly day but we got to spend time together and that's what's important (to me at least).
This year our Relief Society has adopted the theme of "Women Who Know". And this month it was centered around Love. So Tuesday night was our activity and we got to bring our spouse or anyone we wanted so KC and I went and learned a few things. Here's a copy of the poster and the handout for the month:
These are always good reminders!
This is the poster from Relief Society in January. The theme was priorities and they had mini-lessons on health/exercise, family, and the gospel.
Thursday was a day that I have been preparing for, for over a year. Every counseling department has a review conducted by the state to make sure that everything that counselors need to be doing is being done. This is done every six years. There are ten standards that we need to be abiding to that deal with things like: reaching every student, collecting data, teaching about college and careers, suicide prevention, and leadership in the school. I have stressed and prepared for this for a while because I knew it was coming up, I am a new counselor and have pretty much got the counseling department going at the school I work at. Well they came out this week and after much stress and peparation we passed!!! What a relief! We have areas where we need improvement but now we can just work on making our program better and helping our students along the way. Here are a few pictures of our boards that we put together:
On Saturday we went to the Safety Kids Fair. We met up with Zildy and the kids. G had a blast collecting all kinds of things and candy. It was better than Halloween! She even got a trophy for playing plinko. Taye even got to do some rock climbing.
