At the hoedown

Matthew's school had a cowboy-themed fundraiser tonight. They had Bill Miller barbeque and auctioned off various donations. The barbeque plates were at a $2 discount, which made it more palatable. Bill Miller is edible but not good barbeque.

Matthew had been excited that there was going to be things to buy, and very disappointed when I explained that (a) auctions meant you don't always win, and (b) the starting bids were all way out of his price range.

I really wish they wouldn't hype their fundraisers so much to kindergarteners.

Melissa had a good time, though: they had music playing and anyone could go up on the stage and dance. So she did. Just like Matthew.
