The auction was last night...I'm pleased to report that the "Rosebud Wreath" earned the school $40.00 and the "Footprints" piece brought in $25.00. I was kind of upset because they were put into the "silent auction" portion of the evening and feel if they had been in the "live auction" portion they may have brought in more money. I say this because one of the nuns of the school did a charcoal drawing and another did a crocheted afghan and the auctioneer was GREAT and put the guilt trip on people when they wouldn't start bidding on an item, especially these two items seeing as the nuns were both in attendance and the items both went for well over $100 each (in fact the afghan went for $175. The auctioneer tried opening the bidding on it at $100 and no one was biting so he went as low as $30 before someone put a bid on it and then it took off with people fighting over it.)
No pictures to show of updates seeing as it has been a very stressful week here with dealing with a family member's illness and keeping the rest of the family updated on his condition and trying to keep my kids calm about it. Hopefully life will be back to somewhat normal soon but only time will let us know that for sure.
Until next update...thanks for looking...
