Taking a quick minute to let you know that yes, in fact, I am still alive.
Last night (or should I say this morning), we finished up Homecoming Week. As the Student Council Advisor, I have spent the last month or so planning, organizing, and preparing everything for the week. Countless hours have gone into it, and finally, the week arrived.
Each day held a different spirit day with different dress-up clothes required. We put on a huge bonfire, held a Powder Puff game where (only) three girls got (minorly) hurt. We spent hours transforming the gym into a "theater" for an assembly, the likes of which you've probably never seen. We then spent even more hours re-transforming the gym into a dance floor and the cafeteria into space, complete with a huge 3D moon, MARS rover, and hundreds of stars hanging from the ceiling. And then we spent one hour cleaning it all up and putting it all away.
It was an AMAZING week. My kids did an incredible job. There were tons of students dressed up each day, hundreds at the bonfire, and at least 1,000 at the dance. Many said the assembly and dance were the best of their high school career so far. I'm so proud of my team.
Needless to say, I'm pretty tired. I barely saw Will all week, but I am happy to report that he and Husband connected a lot and that things went well overall.
In theory, I might have a little more free time now. You know, time to actually get on the computer and/or even blog. What? Impossible, you say?
Well, it might not happen, but I'm going to try.
To hold you over until I post Will's (overdue) 6 month update, here we are last weekend at his first big football game.
I'll be back (soon, I hope!)
