Dance Teacher's Helper
- My 11-year-old daughter has helped the newer dancers at her Irish dance studio. She loves it! It helps the teacher and helps her focus on areas that she needs to improve. Like turning her feet out and pointing her toes at all times.
- My daughter and her Girl Scout troop farmed oysters for a year to help the Chesapeake Bay Foundation restore the Bay. They kept them safe and now the oysters will help filter the Bay water and provide food for other creatures. Once she turns 12, I'd love to have her volunteer at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. They're need for food and help has grown tremendously during the recession.
