Pendergast School-District Kindergarten Event

Michelle and Sean were recently at the “Welcome to Kindergarten” for the Pendergast School District in Avondale, Arizona. 100 lucky families received a free copy of the DADDYTELLER book from Sean. PESD uses a bee as a mascot (“We BEE-lieve in You!”)…so Sean captured the moment in a photo. Thanks for hosting us, good PESD folks!
