I met Tanita Horton at church several months ago. She had prayed for the Lord to send people to enrich the lives of "her kids”, as she is the office administrator at Campbell Hill Elementary School in Skyway. I approached her and told her that perhaps I could bring 8 students in my advisor group to do some art workshops with several of her classes, much like we had done for Service Days several years ago at Lockwood Elementary in Kenmore, which also had no art program.
I have kind of a funny story for you. Yesterday, a service representative came to switch out our postage meter machine in the office. He replaced it with the same model, but now it’s just a little bit fresher and cleaner. As the rep was showing us a faster way to print international postage, he flipped up a little plastic flap to reveal a keyboard. I gasped. After almost two years of working at the office, I still did not know that machine had a keyboard! Our rep laughed and then showed me another trick to unjam the machine should an envelope get stuck. Good thing I enjoy learning new things!
