Irina and Nik waiting for the ceremony to start. Aren't they cute? BTW, when one of our kids has a big event, the rule is they all must go. We think showing support is important. And no, I don't care what people think taking all with us to such an event.
It was literally standing room only. It was ridiculous! People were lined up everywhere. And it was HOT. Understatement of the year. People were sweating, going in & out of the auditorium. Found out from Max the school's air conditioners had been broken since the last storm & they kept opening the doors & windows during school. Umm, nice to inform the folks attending this event. URGHH!!! They could have at least told folks to wear shorts. Alex had real trouble staying cool. Luckily, the people waiting to serve the 5th graders melting cupcakes gave him some water. Honestly, I thought we were going to be in air conditioning so thought nothing of getting stuff ready for Alex. His cooling vest still has not arrived.
Max and Nik resting. It was just too hot to stand most of the time. The ceremony was over 2 hours. It was very hard on any kids in attendance.
Ahh, freedom from the heat. LOL. We were very proud of Bojan. It seemed cooler outside & it was in the 90's that day.
The picture doesn't do it justice but the sky was gorgeous when the ceremony was over. We went home after to let the dogs out. After roasting for 2 hours, we decided neither of us was going home to cook over a hot fire.
Went to Logan's. We go somewhere, we all get water. Though all of us were dying for an ice cold coke, it wasn't happening. We hadn't been out to eat for quite some time so thought it was a good night for it. We try to go out once a month if we can. Kids did great. All were hungry as ceremony ended at 8 or so.
This is what we came home to after enjoying a nice evening out with our kids. This is courtesy of Alaska,I'm sure of it. She is our chewer.
