It's been a long week! The PTO carnival was last night and it was a huge success. It looks like we made around $4000.00. We have no pictures to show you. I don't think that either one of us sat down all day. There just wasn't enough time. The silent auction that we worked so hard on went well. We think about $1300.00 of the profit was from that. I don't have the exact numbers yet. So we'll have to see.
It was a lot of fun and next year, if we do become PTO presidents we will change a few things. We've already discussed a few things. First of all, it was way to spread out. We had a big slide, an obstacle course blow up, a bounce house, a swing, a climbing wall and a train, but they were scattered all over the school ground and it made for a lot of walking and a lot more work for putting them up.
How many of your schools host carnivals? Any great ideas? Our carnival games were a big bust
:(. Partly because they were kinda lame and we had a lot of mom's who were supposed to help who never showed up. FRUSTRATING! I would like to invest some money into making nice carnival games, (plinko, roller ball, ring toss) games that the PTO can keep and always have. That way we aren't tracking down games every year.
The one thing I for sure know is that Mandee and I are tired. We both woke up feeling like we had been hit by a bus. It was after 10:00 p.m. when I walked in the door last night. Another thing I'm sure of is that we've missed blogging!!! Missed our blogging friends! Thanks for your Patience! We'll be back as soon as we can catch up!
