It is the beginning of the school year. So far everything has gone great. We love our school. We love our teachers. We love our friends. But with the beginning of the school year comes the fund raisers.
Our school only has one official fund raiser. They bring the kids together and get them excited about different cheapy prizes they can earn by going door to door. I was not excited. In fact I hate it. I tried to talk the kids out of selling (except to me and grandparents)-how's that for school spirit?. Of course the kiddos wanted to participate anyway. Of course they wanted to go door to door. Actually they did a good job...but I hated it!
We decided to go to my parents' neighborhood. Mom walked around with us. I am grateful that she had a better attitude-she didn't complain. She didn't get shortness of breath and almost pass out between each house. Thanks to mom, Emily was able to earn the "lunch limo ride", Ryan and Andrew were able to win a mini-soccer ball each (they all hit their personal goals). I have already announced that next year we are NOT going door to door. We can go to Culver's night and other fun Fund Raiser Events and I will volunteer at school...but the wrapping paper is not happening.
Sorry for the bad attitude...
