I’ve had enough fun – and work – for one day; so let’s just cover the highlights; and then I’m going to crash and nap for the rest of the night.
We had a normal morning with Tai Chi by the river and breakfast in the sunroom before we got ready for work or school and heading out – or in Mom’s case; staying home for the morning. My school day was pretty good; I did my homework after school with Rowen at the computer store; had dinner with Michael at his house; and then we went to a marching band planning meeting with our Moms.
That’s the top news story of the day. We’re currently at sixty percent of our fundraising goal; and fully-expect to hit our target on time. I’ll mention that not all band members are raising funds equally, but that’s normal; and the group fundraising will more than make up for that difference.
I can also report that the travel arrangements are dealt with; and first payment has been made for the trip. That’s being handled through our charity travel; Rowen’s grandmother is coordinating; and there won’t be any issues with that part of the plan. The raffle is doing better than expected; so we’ll be ahead of the plan for it by the time we do the draw at Halloween. We worked on getting everything ready for our fundraising booth for the fall festival tonight; and that’s ready to go now too. Finally, we’re getting ready for our Christmas fundraiser – special, musical Christmas ornaments that we’ll have programmed with a Christmas song that the band will play and record. The supplier has been picked, the order will be placed soon; and we’ll deal with the music sometime soon too. Sales for the Christmas ornaments will begin the week of Thanksgiving.
We dealt with the rest of the current-event issues for the marching band – all of those little details that need to be kept up with to keep things going and be ready for the upcoming events. None of that is very interesting, though; so I won’t bore you with any of that. Everything is set up for the rest of the football season, Halloween, and the Christmas parade and concert season; so we might not even bother with a major planning meeting again until early December. I’ll keep you posted on that.
This isn’t exactly a micro-report; but let’s wrap it up that way.
Michael came home with me; he did his homework while I played the music and we practiced for the teen praise team practice tomorrow night; and then we both practice for band. Mom did a Magi lesson with us after that; we tucked the twins in for the night; and then Michael went home while I got to work on my studies and family business work. That’s what I’ve been doing since then; worked in a time phase so I wouldn’t be up doing that for most of the night; and now I’m done and ready to crash; so, until next time...
...May the Magi Force be with you!
