I got off work yesterday and I was headed home, as I was turning at the light at Newton Creek, I see my car coming towards me. Window down, sunglasses on, sweet girl smiling....it was my girl~she was on her way to deliver some items to her sister who had stayed after school. Was that not the weirdest thing. It just seems so strange to see her, without me, driving down the road, waving as we pass.
I got my things together and headed to the school where Peanut was, so that I could help her. Her Costa Rica group had planned a game night at Jo lane. There were wii games~ guitar hero, dance-dance, rock band~slot machines, cake walk (with so many baked goods it was amazing), the kids were invited to come and they would get a cup full of tokens for $5 and they could play the slots, with the tokens they won they could earn prizes. There were some cool prizes. The winners of the wii stuff could win bowling bucks, free pizza, dinner from sonic, and a tshirt claiming the grand prize of 2009 wii champion at Jo lane. We were selling nachos and hot dogs, soda, ice cream, chips.... The only thing that didn't go well~the number of kids that showed up.
Less than 50 I would say. We found out that there was a dance for the middle schoolers at the Boys and Girls club and that is where the majority of our kids had gone. We worked hard and the kids that came~had a great time. I guess the plan is to try again next month, but what a lot of work. Hopefully, it will go better next time.
