Vance Spring Festival

SmugMug Daily Link

The boys' school held a Spring Festival this past Saturday.  What a success!  The event was outside, and it was a terrific day.  The PTA sold t-shirts, food, and tickets for the games and bounce houses.  The raffled off themed baskets put together by the classes.  I was hoping to win the gift card basket or NC State themed basket but better luck next year.  Johnny spent most of his time in the bounce houses.  Joey and I did all the games, made a stepping stone, and ran the Rubber Ducky Game for one of the volunteer slots.  At the end, the principal and assistant principal did karaoke songs picked by the students and then got pies thrown in their faces.  They sure were good sports.

Joey's 5th grade class took a field trip this past Thursday to the Betsy Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Camp.  I went as a chaperon.  We canoed, learned about creatures in the lake and nearby stream, talked about habitats and took a hike around the lake, learned about prey vs. predators, and had a pioneer experience making candles and cornbread.  It was a full and fun-filled day!
