Spring break is coming to a close. Another winter snowstorm came blowing in. Nice.
It was a mostly uneventful spring break, really, and so I'm feeling a little restless. I think I should take some lessons from Judy in planning and organizing a memorable spring break. But it wasn't without productivity. Got some work work done as well as some spring cleaning type stuff done around the house.
And I've also made a dent Run With Lumber preparations.
One action item on the list is procurring pesky participation prizes (aliteration!). This is no easy task. The prizes need to be (a) fun (b) cheap (c) not TOO special since each kid gets one just for showing up that day (d) cheap (e) non-gender specific (f) cheap (g) specific to "Run With Lumber" (h) cheap (i) different from prizes given within the last 6 years... and did I mention cheap?
A few weeks ago, I went on the hunt for just the elusive thing. I think I found appropriate
junk prizes - from a local supplier no less. This week, a big box of them arrived.
Rather than describe them, I provide the following 20-second visual:
Ooh, we are partying now.
