Do they even have May Day Poles anymore? I remember them from elementary school--they had them in recess-volleyball poles with stremers. And, in art class we made May Day baskets and were told to put them on someones porch, ring the bell and run. Now days that would probably get us shot. Have times changed or what??
Two weeks ago I spent a good part of the week taking and teaching classes. I now have my CPR and First Aid instructor certification from the American Heart Association. I have already taught my first class. Later this summer I will be teaching some more. Emily will be old enough to get hers as well in 15 months, then we can work together. Until that time, I have a friend who is also an instructor as well. I find that if the class is very big, having another instructor works better. This isn't the first time I have had my instructor. I had it years ago with the Red Cross and let it expire. So, this is another thing in my life that has come full circle.
