Mission Avenue School Auction

This past weekend was the school auction. The auction event team really knocked it out of the park.  I volunteered Pedar (sorry, not sorry honey) to create the classroom projects for the silent auction. He made a measuring board for Erik's second grade class and he painted a dragon playing a guitar for Casey's sixth grade class.

Pedar got home last week from three days camping with eight-year-old's and quickly tried to catch up on work, etc. Saturday arrived and his painting wasn't done. He said, "They don't need this painting at the auction. I'll finish it later." I said, "No. You have to finish it. It doesn't have to be perfect, just done." So he did it, and I think it is awesome.

The starting bid for it was really low, so I placed a bid, thinking that others would bid, but nope. So we won it. And the best part of the night was giving it to Mr. Martin as a gift. Bryon Martin is Casey's sixth grade teacher and he has taught Casey how to ROCK a guitar this year. We are so grateful to Mr. Martin for introducing Casey to his new passion and for being a loving and supportive mentor to him this year.

The theme for the auction was Wild Wild West! Hoedown and Auction! So, I got a funny tank top and a t-shirt for Pedar. Oh, I may have purchased my first pair of cowboy boots too. Thank you, Boot Barn. Another fun auction in the books. Can't believe Casey graduates Mission Avenue in June.
