April 24, 1987Dear Mother & Dad,
Hi! We got your last post card from Brazil a few days ago. Glad our letter got there in time. Wendy & a friend have gone to movies & dinner with Roberta. Gerry and I have been watching our new cable TV channels – just got hooked up yesterday. We had promised Wendy we'd get Disney channel if i got the Glendale job so she's happy!
The workshop on Weds. for the juvenile detention teachers was interesting but they didn't like a lot of our suggestions – they didn't want anything violent or occult/supernatural which eliminated a lot of the books which are popular! Today I went to a workshop in Tempe (at the CommunityCenter right next to the library – it brought back memories of a day in January when my farsighted mother said Glendale was a better place). This one was on books & toys for birth - 4 yrs. in AM and on Summer Reading Programs in PM. Met several more (3) children's librarians from Glendale.
Tomorrow morning Wendy & I are going to a "Partners in Education" conference that the school district is putting on. Gerry has to work.
We don't have any firm plans for Wendy's summer yet. How does the Iowa bike ride (Congrats!) affect your plans?
I got this stationery at a new Pik & Save near here – cheap!
How's Grandma doing? We haven't gotten an announcement form MV yet. Are we on her list?
Love, Catherine, Gerry & WEndy
