Future Vikings Dance and Valentine's Party

Today we had the busy but best day I can remember in awhile. We left Jessica's school around 9 and headed for the high school for the 1st Annual Future Vikings Dance! The buses were greeted by 2 LONG lines of students that were cheering and clapping for the Sp. Ed. students. It almost brings a tear to my eyes just remembering-it was so sweet. Then we got inside and the party really began. The music was up and the kids were going "wild". Actually, they were pretty well behaved but had such a great time. Jessica really loved it because the music was up and she could just run around!! The high school kids were so sweet and just danced around and asked all the "guest" if they would like to dance. They were dancing all around for 1 1/2 hours! I was exhausted when it was over but also so proud of the young people that are being raised in our community. So many times we just hear about the "bad" ones, well, today I witnessed some great ones! They all lined up to tell the kids good-bye and have them each a Valentine treat! What a great morning!

We left the dance and went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch and then back to school for cupcakes and juice while the kids enjoyed their Valentines. A side story about the cupcakes---I rushed home yesterday after school, I've been teaching for a week and a half and then frosted them after church. They were pretty cute for a mix!! Well, going into school this morning I dumped them over in the carrier!! Needless to say, when we gave them to the kids this afternoon, they were NOT very cute! OH WELL, the kids ate them anyway.

Back to our day, all the children seemed to enjoy themselves so much and Jessica and I left school, came and picked Kenny up and took off for Samantha's region tournament! They won but it was not very pretty either-kind of reminded me of my cupcakes! :) Anyway, they play in the finals tomorrow night-Congrats, Sam and good luck tomorrow!
