This was an amazing weekend - Mason hit a milestone on Sunday and it validated so much of what I have been working to teach him about building momentum. Mason has enjoyed building his video library on You Tube, but there were times when he would be less enthusiastic and question the point of the whole thing. I said to him, "Let's do the work and create a place where people who might want to hire you someday can see what you are all about and how much fun you have teaching kids to cook." On Sunday, Mason did his first paid job cooking at an event hosted by the Junior League of Sacramento and was representing Raley's. How cool is that? Raley's is also considering hiring Mason to do live demo's in their stores in the Northern CA region encouraging kids to eat their vegetables and try new things. Yesterday I was able to point out to Mason that when he asked when he would get paid to do live cooking demos and I said someday, "Someday is today!" Go Mason! Now it's time to ramp up for a busy month of cooking demos all through May. These are not paid gigs, but the people we are working with are now paying for the supplies we need to do the demo - that's a huge help!
Dave finished another class yesterday and now only has 10 more classes to complete to earn his Bachelor's Degree. Taking on line classes while working full time and meeting the needs of ones family is certainly not the easy way to do it, but maybe there is a bit more appreciation for the process when one works harder. In any case, I am incredibly proud of him!
Have an awesome week and make some plans to get outside, we are looking at temps reaching the 90s by Friday. Sounds like picnic and river weather to me!
