I volunteer with food bank deliveries for the Salvation Army, Dartmouth. Playing, having fun, indoors and outdoors, crafts, being active, story time and working with a routine as that helps with children’s security are some of my attributes. I can be flexible when needed . We are saving to make a trip overseas to visit my family and it will be the first time my girls will meet them later this year. I love going to the beach, parks and on the trails with children. Go on the buses sometimes just so children can enjoy the experience.
