We are having a great time at staff conference! We are having lots of talks catching up with friends that we haven’t seen for a year. Today we went into Vienna and did a “Serve the City” type thing (basically where we do lots of service projects around the city). I made balloon animals with a group of people. I actually made balloon animals for a living (well, my first job) when I was fifteen. Somehow, I remembered how to create almost all of the things I could once do. Yes, I was proud of myself. Lame. Anyways, it was really fun. Maisie had a couple meltdowns throughout the day, but did pretty well for the most part. She isn’t used to so many people being around her all the time. Oh wait, she lives in Paris. At least she isn’t used to so many people talking to her all the time. I also had a meltdown toward the end of the day when it felt like I was surrounded by hundreds of kids asking me to make them a poodle or hat or sword. Well, it was more like five kids. But it felt like hundreds. My team mocked me for my hidden talent, but at the end of the day, they were the ones asking me for a poodle or puppy. Maisie is eating things off the ground. Have to go for now!
