Phinally...

Hallelujah...it's over.

Just try keeping 17 teenagers focused on The Gospel According to Saint Mark a few short hours after the BIG WIN. Just try getting your post-game-crazed/pre-Halloween-hyper nine year old to eat a healthy breakfast before he BOUNCES onto the schoolbus.

Just try not to burst into tears at the thought of three costume parades, three classroom parties, two neighborhood celebrations, several hours of trick-or-treating and the doorbell ringing all night long.

No, we're not going to the victory parade. I'm saving my celebrating until the lights go out of the jack-o-lanterns!


p.s. Would this not have made the most adorable Christmas card?!! The one year I ordered my photos early. Drat.

Keeping the Seminary kids quiet and engaged on a normal day is hard...but after a big win? I would have just chucked the lesson and done a game! You are better than me.

I can not imagine the whole seminary issue! I would be pulling my hair out. Yes, very cute photo. Shame on you for being so on the ball.
