I didn't do too much screaming today, but Lucas sure did!
A friend of mine, my boys, and I went up to the school (for the third day in a row, by the way) for their annual Ice Cream Social today. It wasn't quite ice cream weather (and it certainly wasn't dunk tank weather, poor Mr. Yanders!), but it was warm with a nice cool breeze. We paid for our ice cream tickets and instead of eating hot dots first for lunch like I had planned, we just ate ice cream instead. Skipping meals in favor of treats isn't something I usually condone, but I let it slide today. They got the ice cream from a local small business called The Purple Cow Creamery. Their ice cream is fantastic!
I was ready to leave, so I hunted Matt down and told him that it was just about time to go. He begged to try to dunk Mr. Yanders (the assistant principal) before we left. So we stood in line for that. Luke was a little calmed down by then, getting snuggly with his blankie, so it was no big deal. While he was on line I saw Samantha's mom. We figured out that we live pretty close to each other, within walking distance! So we agreed to try to get together sometime soon. By the time Matt got his chance at the dunk tank, it wasn't Mr. Yanders, but Ms. Piazza (the principal) sitting on the platform.
Matt did his best, and he even hit the target once! He just wasn't strong enough to activate the lever.
And this picture, this one right here... I am under strict orders NOT to post it to Facebook. She never said anything about my blog though!
