Emailing the kid

leave a comment »

While Darla is doing distance learning at the park, she is using her computer and the school has given her an email address. I’m loving the fact that she likes to email me throughout her day.

Darla on the news!

leave a comment »

Darla has been doing the Los Angeles City recreation and parks program while I work so she can get her school work done there. I’m so very thankful to this program that allows my child to be safe and to get the help she needs with her class work. Her teacher at Fenton Ave and that entire school has been wonderful and supportive in trying to create a learning environment that is virtual and safe.

She was interviewed by channel 7.

Covid School care at the Parks

leave a comment »

School is a lifesaver for a few parents because it’s a safe place for your child to be that is usually free.

The week before Darla started school I realized she wasn’t going to get into the free after school care and I had to hunt. I was so lucky that someone suggested I called Los Angeles City recreation and Parks and talk to Juchelle. she agreed to come in on a Saturday so my daughter could meet her and feel comfortable going with her after school.

5 years later we are still using the parks religiously. (Not the original park because the Humphreys Park in Pacoima is where she got a black eye and they took an accountability for it.) I just signed her up for Delano’s Park so that she can be there from 8:00 to 6:00 and do her school work.

She would rather do camp Kaleidoscope at Northridge but that one is $150 a week. So that’s $300 for two weeks and $600 for a month and I just can’t afford that.

But I am so grateful to know that she will be with adults and have food and care provided to her so that I can work without worry.

Designing Darla – a Pandemic Pastime

To entertain ourselves and keep focus off the news : we have been drawing.

I have been looking for outlets for this art and remembered I had stumbled across Spoonflower in 2014. I popped some pictures in there and printed them out as samples which were mailed to me.

Our friend, Sally Roten, had started sewing and selling face masks at http://www.gomaskurself.com. I took the opportunity to take fabric over to her for perusing and using.

Well, it seems people like my artwork and Darla’s art too. We are on track to earn $200 a month in commissions.

Neat!
