Had a Great Teen Event Last Night
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
We had a great tween/teen night last night with the kids in our homeschool group, but boy was it exhausting! LOL I have two teenagers and my friend who is the co-owner of our group has one, but we had a good turnout for it being our first event of this type.
The kids had a blast and there was tons of laughter and smiles, so that's what counts. It's so funny to see how far our little group has come after being split in two after a very upsetting event last year by one person in particular who took her friends with her and started her own group.
She wanted to take over our group and bully us, but I didn't allow it so it came down to a very dramatic and ugly phone conversation from her towards us on a 3-way call. It's been a blessing really and we have the greatest moms and kids in our group. It's so much less stressful although very stressful at times when she and I are constantly on the go and constantly setting events up.
It's a challenge to come up with fresh ideas and plan all these events, but it seems every one is happy with us doing it although we encourage (me especially, LOL) them to set up events.
We have a Valentine party coming up so we're in charge of decorating, reserving the room, organizing the event, coming up with games and arts/crafts, etc. It's fun and keeps you on your toes, but at the same time I wish others would feel comfortable to jump in and organize some events as we have stressed over and over it is perfectly fine with us.
My husband and I don't really celebrate Valentine's so won't be eating out and he won't be buying me chocolate or flowers (he knows better, LOL), etc. I don't really care about those type of things and am happy to stay at home and enjoy a dinner there.
