We spent Friday night playing trivia for K’s ‘after school’ program. It’s their annual fundraiser, and pays for all the incidentals of the program. Apparently they were used to having around 20-40 kids and this year they had 60, so I’m really glad to say that they had their highest turnout and $ raised for next year. There was a silent auction, too. We didn’t bid on anything, I wasn’t sure what to do and Matt was completely unhelpful. I hate that. Anyway, we invited my parents down, and cooked dinner for them. My mom was kind enough to throw together some brownies for the door prizes, since I had come down with a horrible cold and felt bad touching anything someone else was going to be eating. Of course K and B got some great 1/2 or 2/2 or 1/1 grandparent time. We ended up sitting at a table with our pastors, and the teen kids of the people running the show (great kids). Seriously hilarious. My mom said rowdy, and she was right, it was loud. It is difficult of course, to compare their church where THEY are the youngest (yes, youngest) pretty much in the church. Our pastors are about 4 or 5 years older than us. We’ve spent quite a bit of time with them and really like them a lot, so it was fun to sit with them. Doesn’t hurt to have them on your side for Bible or music trivia either (as he is a former professional musician that does preaching/singing for his bit around the globe, as she is our main preacher). They were fun for points of argument, too, giving the lady announcing the trivia a hard time (some of the questions were worded very awkwardly and lead us to say false when they were looking for true, etc). The kids did great at tv/movie/pop culture trivia. The younger kids were runners, bringing soda and plates of cookies and bowls of popcorn for everyone, so even they did their part to support the program. Brennan got passed around like a party favor at the table, I only had to hold her to feed her, and after a long week of ‘hold me mommy’, it was a nice break.
