Fundraising, Fun-raising

Our beloved school, which our family co-founded, held a dinner and silent auction event this past weekend that proved to be a huge success in more ways than one.

I served on the planning committee, and after months of preparation with a team of amazing fellow parent volunteers, was utterly blessed to see our vision executed smoothly, while exceeding the expectations of guests and community.

Our guests enjoyed an evening of live jazz, top notch food, and over 100 items to bid on.

In addition to raising generous support for the school, we that hosted were privileged to experience teamwork and Christ-like servant-hood through this labor of love.

Here's the Headmaster and me, unable to take a decent prom pic because I'm too busy laughing. Oh well.

And, while I was putting in long hours setting up for this fundraiser, the menfolk of the family were out bonding over fun and games: guns, caber toss, and chain mail.

(Sorry for the camera-phone photos...their dad was just so proud.)

I so enjoyed our special night; however, I'm thrilled to be spending the day catching up on chores and getting back to a slightly slower pace of life. Have a wonderful Monday!
