Tonight was Fall Festival at school, and it was one of those events that I have always daydreamed about doing as a parent, and I must say that it did not disappoint! The day started a bit rushed because Ellie was up ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Really, 11:00 -3:45! Needless to say, I skipped the shower and slept as long as possible. I didn't get the game we donated delivered nor did I get my bake sale or cake walk items finished. It was a crazy lunch hour, but it was well worth it to see Eli so excited when I picked him up from school!
Griffin was there, and that was just icing on the cake for Eli! They had a great time, but both of them were being extra bashful the entire night. Expect, of course, when they were in disguise. This is what you call "hiding behind a mask."
One of the things I love about our school is that is truly a part of the community. There were families there from church and daycare who don't even have kids who attend. They just wanted to come out at support the fundraiser. Ya'll it seriously shut down a whole city block…how cool is that?
Everyone knows my kids by name, and that means a lot to a Momma's heart. Even Ellie Girl found a familiar face. These two sassy things are going to be best of friends and maybe even a little bit of trouble when they get to the school. Ha!
We had a great time, but had to jet a little early so that we could make it home in time to see Nan and Grandad who are on their way as we speak.
