So, every year the my preschool donate their time to do this festival...BUT no one really told me. I mean they told me about it, but I thought that it was IF you wanted it...but it wasn't...it wasn't that bad...but the fact that I didn't have a car to drive there, because my car is totaled. [Oh, yeah, did I mentioned that my car was TOTALED?!] Anyways, we were suppose to help out from 10:30am-1:30pm...the hottest time of the day.
I ended up walking there with my friend Jackie. It was a hot walk, but it was okay, because it was part of the route that I would jog anyways some days. It took us 30 minutes to walk there. And if you think I talk a lot...you need to meet Jackie...now SHE is a talker! *laughs* I realize that I'm pretty good at listening too...I do that a lot now-lately...you learn so much more.
I had the gladiator jumper...and I was doing that jump thingy with Nicole the other 2-year old teacher...and a LOT of kids were wanting to come inside to jump...dispite being super hot. I had a lot of fun inside the jumping house myself too...I felt like a kid all over again!
I met Nicole's kids...she has three with her youngest being nine months old...she is the cutest little thing ever! Made me miss "my" little girls back in Cali. I can't wait to see them again! But Nicole's baby she is sooooo happy, always smiling and laughing and cooing, and I got to hold her...I miss infants!! :)
I got to meet a lot of the parents from the other preschools and just meet a lot more people. Afterwards we walked around the place to check it out...there were a lot of booths, we even got this one guys card who could help us with wedding stuff. [There is this couple who wants to do the whole 1000 cranes origami thingy...and my sister has been searching for someone who could do that! And we found someone! Yay!]
It was a good day. Hot...but all in all, a day that I met a lot of people and make more friends. Yes, I was disappointed that I didn't get to go to Queen's park to do my running and swimming...but that's okay...I can always make up this week at Kailua Beach instead...maybe Lanikai...oh well, I'm surrounded by beaches, I can take my pick...but I do like Queen's park...oh well.
