I am the worse mom because I never want to go to any of the school "functions". Lastnight, at Brentons school, they had the Oktoberfest celebration and Mike "made" me go with him. After about 5 minutes, I really just wanted to leave, I really do not know anybody at his school so I had nobody to talk to. But, we stayed and stayed and stayed to the very end. We bought 3 punch cards that we put into the raffle box, and we put Brentons name on all of them. At the end of the evening, they announced the winners. They had 6 people who won pizzas, then on to the better prizes...Brenton won a gift certificate to a restaurant and the big prize, which was this bike, it is so awesome, he was so surprised and excited, he couldn't believe that he won 2 prizes. We couldn't either, I mean, who wins 2 times in a raffle??? I told Brenton that he is allowed to buy lottery tickets now, because the chances of him winning are big!! On the ride home, he said to me, "Hey Mom, do you know how great it feels to win something?" He is so humble, and such a great kid. I guess it made the whole evening worth attending! I will never complain about going to another school function again.
