Refreshing PTL Meeting
Refreshing PTL meeting....is that an oxymoron? Tonight, we had just that! It isn't often that we have a PTL meeting with good attendance. It isn't often that we have a PTL meeting without an argument. It isn't often that we have a productive PTL meeting. I am not sure why any of these things are true. Tonight, however, it was great. There was a great crowd for the Learning Fair! (Ben learned to make fudge. It was SO good. He is the new holiday fudge maker in our house!) After viewing the projects, everyone settled down for devotions provided by the seventh and eighth graders. We then gave out awards for this grading period. Ben's Young Author's book captured 3rd place. Then came the meeting. We had some productivity! We made a very exciting decision about Heritage Weekend. (HUGE here in Lanesville. A big old farm equipment fair.) PTL always has a booth to sell something. One parent said we needed to not sale anything, but rather give things away so that we can let people know who we are and what we are about. We are going to GIVE things away. I have been hoping this could happen for FOREVER! Very exciting! Then, if that wasn't a long enough list of positives, we voted for new officers. There were more than enough choices for the positions! It was so very exciting! I didn't know there could be such refreshing PTL meetings! We then left, at 8:00! Yes, all of this was accomplished in two short hours! I still cannot believe it happened! YEAH!
