My Very Busy Weekend

Spread the love

Boy, was this weekend jammed packed with activities. Friday evening was a little slow after we got home from Shy’s baton practice. But, that was just the lull before the storm.

Saturday morning, Shy had to be at the football field by 10:45 dressed in her baton uniform. The girls who are performing at Disney in November twirled between two of the middle school football games. We stayed to watch the whole game since many of these boys were Dylan’s classmates and the team is undefeated so far.     

** On a side note here, Saturday was the first time this year that I came home with a sunburn. The weather here has been in the high 80’s and 90’s. **

After this game we went home for about an hour before we headed out again. This time the three of us went to the local university to help set up for a Bingo fundraiser.

This is to help finance the girls who are performing at Disney. I was there from 3:00 to 5:30 helping set up tables and chairs in preparation for approximately 300 people.

Sunday, our day was spent helping with the Bingo games. We also had a silent auction, concessions, Split-the-pot, and grab bags for our participants. The kids and I arrived at 11:30, helped with final setups, and I manned the Split-the-pot and grab bags. The kids and I also managed to play some games.

After the games were completed and people left, we help stack the chairs and tables. We threw away trash and cleaned up as much as we could. Many larger items had to be loaded in trucks to be returned to business that had loaned us there items.

Overall, I would say our Bingo was a large success. We raised close to $6,000. Now on to the next fundraiser.

To say the least, by the time we arrived home at 6:00. We had pizza for supper.
