So are you ready for a clue on where to find Wednesday's Easter egg? (It looks exactly like the one pictured.)
We've reached Day Two of our three-day Easter egg hunt for a chance to win three passes to the "Here We Grow Again" presale event, and the second egg is now hidden!
(In case you missed it, Monday's Easter egg is still hidden, and you can find the clue here.)
Tuesday's Easter egg looks exactly like the one pictured here, so let's get on with the clue about where it is!
Alright, Villagers! The first day of our Easter egg hunt to win three tickets to the "Here We Grow Again" presale is here!
The first Easter egg has been hidden.
Pictured is the egg you're looking for.
Remember the first two steps of the contest:
Are you familiar with Here We Grow Again? Twice a year, they hold a kids' consignment sale at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex in Danville, and this year's Spring Sale is April 13-16.
They're going to have over 90,000 clothing items, toys, furniture and other kids' items for sale that will save shoppers a ton of money. It's a huge event that Villagers should definitely make a point of experiencing!
Wouldn't it be cool to be able to shop the Here We Grow Again Spring 2016 Sale the day before it's opened to the public? Oh yeah. All the best stuff still there, ripe for the purchasing!
Well, I have three passes to give away to the Here We Grow Again Spring 2016 pre-sale that will take place on Tuesday, April 12, from 4 to 8 p.m.! We're going to do a little online Easter egg hunt every day on March 21, 22 and 23!
Here's how it's going to work:
We don't get to the movies very often, but when "Zootopia" hit theaters last week, my girls couldn't wait to cash in their Royal Theater gift certificates that they got for Christmas to see the newest animated Disney movie.
I don't normally do movie reviews because I don't pay enough attention to assess things like cinematography and soundtrack and direction and lighting and all of that stuff.
But "Zootopia" bills itself as a family movie, and we happened to see it during its opening weekend, so I thought parents might be interested to know whether or not it's appropriate for OUR KIDS.
(Don't worry, no spoilers here.)
One of the many things that I do in the community that involve OUR KIDS is substitute teach at Danville North Elementary and Danville South Elementary Schools (that's a range of kindergarten through 4th grade, for those who are unfamiliar).
I'm in my third year of substitute teaching, and I thoroughly enjoy it. I have subbed at the middle school and high school levels, too, but due to scheduling issues, the vast majority of my experience over the past couple of years has been at the elementary school level.
When people learn that I'm a substitute teacher, it's not uncommon for them to ask, "What's it like?"
Well, every day is an adventure. But it's an awesome adventure.
In its 10 years of existence, They're Our Kids has gone through several transformations in an attempt to make it easier for Villagers to find the information that they're looking for on the website.
I've collected information on so many resources available to Hendricks County parents over the years, however, that it's become pretty unwieldy and cumbersome to list them all in the way I've been listing them.
It's also incredibly difficult for me to keep all of the buttons on TOK up-to-date. Websites change, organizations come and go, and just as I get one page cleaned up on TOK, another one turns up several dead links.
So to solve the problems of Villagers having difficulty finding what they're looking for, as well as links going dead, They're Our Kids unveils its new membership program for businesses, organizations, sports leagues and other entities that serve the children of Hendricks County!
