Yesterday was Mother’s Day in Poland. So one would think it would be a relaxing day for me, right? Wrong!
I started the morning first taking the kids to school(yes, we are still in school here for another month) and then I was off to take workshop about non-verbal communication(more about that another day).
Then before you know school was done and time to pick up the girls and take them to this…
A friend of ours was telling me the other day about the Scouting group her daughter belongs to. I am a HUGE Scouting supporter as I did it from grade 1 all the way through graduating high school. Earned just about every badge & award you can earn including the Gold Award. Even after graduating, I started volunteering for Girl Scouts then every next month and have never stopped the last 22 years even living overseas until we moved here to Poland. I was the Overseas Committee Chair for the US Girl Scout program in the southern Netherlands, part of Belgium and western Germany. Even my husband has the Scouting bug as he has held several key positions in Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Unfortunately since there are only 2 others girls my daughters age here at the military base here we can’t start a US troop here. BUT another positive of sending them to a Polish school and learning the Polish language is they know enough of the language to participate in the Polish Scouting program!
So my friend asked me if my girls would like to join her daughter at last nights Mother’s Day campfire. My girls were beyond excited to join in!
Now if that was not enough fun for the day, at church we organized a Mother’s Day picnic of sorts. I LOVE doing fun things like this at church as Sunday’s are always in a rush and I never really get to talk to people and picnics like this you can really get to talk and get to know more about each other.
It was a busy Mother’s Day you could say for me but for those mom’s out there…is the not the story of lives?
