I started yesterday up at school volunteering once again for the literacy program. I have two second grade boys this year. One of the boys I had last year was so excited about me helping him again. I remember last year his comment was "this is better than playstation". Having kids myself, I know what a huge compliment that was. All they want and need is some attention that is lacking in their home setting. This is my 4th year helping kids with this program and it has been great. When we were in Pittsburgh, I was involved with the school board, fundraisers, and mainly dealing with adults. Now, I've changed all that and only deal with things directly with the kids. Much more rewarding I would say.
