St. Patrick Feast In School

This week is the busiest for me with school related activities for the kids. Some moms including myself helped the first and kindergarten teachers to serve green pancake, green, egg and green milk for the kindergartner and first graders.  This is the teacher's way of cooking for the kids.  
I must admit that all of the kids had so much fun and they enjoyed everything we served.  It was like the best pancake and  scrambled eggs  they  have  ever eaten lol.
The teachers were the ones who  cooked and then we served them to the kids.
This is one of the many things we like about the school where my kids goes.  The teachers truly care for every student they have.  They treat them like their own children which is very commendable.
The teachers in my children school does not get paid much because their pay rate is based from the tuition fee which is not much compared to  the teachers from public schools.  That's why, there are homeroom Moms and other volunteers who does other work in school rather than hiring someone to do it because  the fund is not sufficient.  For that reason,  the parents make sure to give the teachers  gifts  on special occasion  because  we know how hard they work for our kids.
Most of the teachers in  the school  teaches because they love what they do even if the salary is  very  small.  I  commend all of them  for doing such  great jobs in molding our kids.

Anyway,  today I also helped  with the book fair at the library and will go back tomorrow.  Will also  attend the St. Patrick mass, my son is one of the readers so he wants me to be there.  Such a busy  world for Moms but it's worth every second I spend  being with them.

Wet N Wild Emerald Point

Every town has its own charms and list of places you absolutely have to go when traveling there. Greensboro, North Carolina, is no exception. If you're vacationing in the Carolinas with your family and need a little help planning daily excursions, consider checking out one of these local sights.

1. Guilford Courthouse National Military Park

This military park is a historical landmark. Here was fought one of the most important battles in the Revolutionary War. With an electronic map to guide you through the site, you can learn all about the history behind Guilford Courthouse. This is an excellent choice for families who are looking for something educational.

2. Greensboro Historical Museum

This museum is one of the most engaging historical museums in the country with plenty of interactive exhibits for children and impressive replicas of old stores. Stop inside the movie theater and watch a silent film, or survey the collection of former First Ladies' gowns. It's a great way to get a sense of Greensboro and how the city has grown and changed over the centuries.

3. Greensboro Science Center

Maybe you and your Greensboro travel companions aren't so much into history, but chances are you'll love the Science Center. The zoo and the "sciquarium" feature displays of all kinds of animals as well as more traditional science museum displays like weather and the human body. With all the activities you and your family can participate in, it's easy to spend the whole day here.

4. The Bog Garden

If you're the outdoors type, take a walk across the bridge through the bog and enjoy communing with nature. It's not a long walk from beginning to end, but it's refreshing and surprisingly quiet, given that it is a local tourist attraction, for a lovely way to decompress after a busy day of sightseeing.

5. Triad Stage

For the performing arts fans traveling through Greensboro, see what's playing at the Triad because you'll want to get tickets. It's an intimate 300-seat theater showcasing both contemporary and classic theater with quality performances from local actors. It often ranks in nationwide lists of regional theaters.

6. Wet N Wild Emerald Point

Are the kids tired of museums, art and educational stops? Then finish off your visit to Greensboro with a day at this amusement park. There are many rides for kids and adults of all ages as well as plenty of places to just lounge and relax while the younger ones are off enjoying the park.
