Last Saturday night we went to a Luau....looks like we might be in Maui, but we only drove to Arcata! Sydney's Preschool ....part of Arcata Christian School (where all three of our girls attended K-8) held their annual dinner and auction. We had a wonderful time.
Liz and I make a quilt every year for the live auction and they usually go for about $300-500. This year we made a Merry-G0-Round, 1930's reproduction quilt and were pleased with the winning bid. It was great to see lots of old friends.....many of those in attendance now have their grandchildren at ACS, just like us. We sat with friends, Nick and Bev Harrison who now live in Eugene, OR. Their 3 girls went to school with our 3 girls and Bev was school secretary for a long time. Their daughter Rachel, our daughter Liz and her friend Larissa filled out our table. The food was fabulous, the kids entertained us and I'm hoping the auctions (both live and silent) raised a ton of $$$ for this great school.
