This last week I had the chance to attend the state PTA convention. I accepted the job of President Elect for the coming school year, a decision I'm still not comfortable with, so I was excited to go and hopefully learn a lot and get an idea of what I was in for. It was just what I needed after a hard week and I was surprised at how much fun I had. I attended with two other ladies one, was the president this year and will do it again this next year and the other was our treasure this year and will work the the Jr, High next year. For me one of the unexpected benefits of the PTA has been all the friends I have made. It has been so nice to meet so many nice ladies who all care as much about our kids, school and community as I do and want to do something about making it better. It was so interesting to look around the convention at the variety of different women (and even a few dads) there, and know that all of us had something in common.
I did learn a lot and get some really great ideas for the coming year. I'm still not convinced I can do pull it off, but hopefully after a year of training under a really great lady I feel better about things.
