4.2.11 Another Pile O' Documents and Shopping
This was another bit of pricey postage for us. To get our documents there and back quickly it was $54.00. Once again, we recommend that you start your document quest as early as possible in order to avoid the expense of this expedited mailing. Because of our tight deadlines, we have no choice. To be honest, at this point we don't really care - we're just excited to finally get going!
Tomorow we are going down to Fort Collins to shop for some teaching supplies. We have been told that simple games and flashcards are great tools, and that little gifts like pencils, erasers, and stickers are like gold in the hogwan classroom. We aren't going to bring a lot of stuff simply because space is at such a premium in our luggage, but we want to have little things to hand out for good work - nothing like bribery to motivate 6 to 12 year olds.
We're also going to shop for teacher clothes for me. I plan on picking up mostly shirts, as I currently have plenty of pants. I am hoping to find some cool short sleeved button ups - we'll see if Spring is close enough on the Front Range for those to be on the racks.
*We still have to get the animals' paperwork in order and our airline reservations are not made yet, so perhaps I am being needlessly optimistic...
