Spring Fling 2006

Yesterday we spent the evening at Garrett's school's "Spring Fling." It's an annual event sponsored by the PTA to raise money for the school. As a matter of fact, it's their biggest fund raiser. There are always 5 or 6 inflatables, lots of games, a trackless train ride, sweet shoppe, silent auctions and more. It's really a fun filled 3 hours that the students all look forward to all year and this year was no different. All Garrett wanted was to win a "date with a teacher" (his teacher). I bid $40 and was in the lead until the very end. It ended up going for $75! That was just way above my limit. He was a little disappointed to say the least. He quickly recovered though and went on to enjoy the rest of the evening. He and I worked at the "Marshmallow Launcher" booth for 30 minutes. That was interesting. Now, the boys are already talking about next years event.
