Well dear friends,
Melon Days came and went. My wife worked HARD to get all her words and frames ready to sell. We made it to the park and set up quickly. The waiting was the hard part. Last year we made a large amount of money. We knew this year would be a little slower what with the economy and all, however we didn't expect it to be as slow as it was. We didn't even make HALF of what we made last year.
But, that is okay. We still made some money and we have many, many sets done and ready to sell. My wife was disappointed to have spent all that time only to have them not sell, but at least they will keep forever.
Today has been interesting to say the least. My sister was at the park and did quite well with her booth. (www.petalspensandpots.com). She headed out today after church. I went to the first hour of meetings and then headed to the school to get Pirate week decorations cleaned up and plan for the next three days. It took almost 7 hours to get things cleaned up, new displays up, copies made, and planning complete. Now I am still avoiding my paper (however I do have almost 3 pages completed on it- so almost done!).
Being the MC of the pageant wasn't all that bad after all. I think it went really well and I am VERY glad that it is over. I don't think I will ever do that again. Ok, I know I won't! :)
This week is also Parent Math Night. It will be fun. I enjoy having parents come and learn about how to help their student. I only wish I knew Spanish so I could communicate with the Hispanic parents in my classroom better.
Well, I better finish my paper.
P.S. Don't forget to VOTE for my little princess. Remember you can vote ONCE a day! :) (See the post below for more info)
