The kids have been in the press lately! It’s be kinda fun to see them out there and about doing great things. A friend of mine sent me the link to last year’s visit to the fire department here in Evanston. I tend to take the kids annually during fire prevention week and D was photographed last year, and I no idea she was in the paper till just last week! : )
Then, we had participated in a service project a few weeks back and we were photographed for this bit as well:
Giving trees: (From left) Amy Jarjusey holding Maeve, Kaiden and Shea Jarjusey, all from Evanston and Nicole and Andre Zamir of Northbrook, are a few of the members of the North Shore’s Mom ‘n’ Kids Caring Club. The group will work with Glenkirk, a local agency that provides residential, vocational and day program services to individuals with developmental disabilities, for its Lucy Coward Holiday Gift Drive. The project provides a holiday gift for every person who use Glenkirk’s services. The club has set up two “Giving Trees” at the Glen Town Center in Glenview: one at The Book Market, 2651 Navy Blvd., and one at Mathnasium, 2651 Valor Court. Club members crafted hand-made pinecone ornaments upon which a Glenkirk client’s gift “wish list” is placed. People may pick an ornament, purchase a $25 gift from the individual’s list, and return the present unwrapped to one of the “Giving Tree” sites. There are also colored stockings on the tree with requests for $5 stocking stuffers. Gifts and stocking stuffers are due back no later than Dec. 9, at which time the moms and kids will wrap them and deliver them to Glenkirk. For more information contact Anne Hoffman at (847) 533-1105 or see www.glenkirk.org.
And also, sometime in the recent past the older 2 participated in a robot workshop for Robot City down in the Lakeview area. They really loved it. It was a free-deal due to the fact that they needed a few kids to video for their spoof on 190North the TV show that aires on Sunday nights. So they had a blast building robots and cruisin’ the store, but wanted nothing to do with any interviews! ; )
(They are about 4 or so min. in, on the second segement of the show.)
