I have been thinking a lot about our End-of-Year party, the most important party of the year for the school. It just happens that Ty is the faculty adviser for this committee so I sent out an email to all of the committee members for a kick-off meeting after school today. I am such a ditz sometimes, though. I managed to get all of the emails wrong except Ty’s, so it ended up being just him and me there. LOL! I thought pretty much everyone had Yahoo.com for their email, but it turns out almost no one does. Lesson learned.
We had a very productive meeting, except that Ty was not as supportive as I had hoped about my ideas for a VIP area for the popular children and he thought that the step and repeat might not be quite what the school is looking for. We decided that we should both think hard about good themes for the event, and get together with the whole committee to discuss it next week. Phew, this is hard work!
Cari stopped by later to discuss the meeting and themes over a glass (or three!) of wine, and to let Starling and Amber play for a bit. Those two girls are just so precious together. They never stop laughing.
Cari brought Starling home to spend the night, so I put the boys to bed early. They had a busy week, and were pretty worn out by 6 PM. I’ve invited a few of Röbert’s college pals and their wives over for a little impromptu barbecue out back tonight. It’s a tiny bit chilly, but I think with a bonfire and a few blankets out there we can probably cuddle up and keep warm. I hope the music and laughter doesn’t bother our neighbors too much. After all, the Sullivan’s bedroom window looks right over our yard and the Wozinski’s can be pretty prickly. But who could wish ill on a few happy couples just enjoying dancing under the stars on a beautiful spring evening?
