Belle's school every year has a pot luck dinner, and balloon launch to celebrate the new school year. I made lasagna, and two desserts, (the first one flopped so I had to make another!). Belle was very excited to go, Spencer was not. The food was great, and my brownies were so good that I didn't even get one! (my sister Janae's recipe, the best brownies I have ever eaten!!! I had to make them again on Sunday so that I could have some.)
Each class hands out the balloons to their students. Each balloon has a message about if you find this balloon send it back to their school to see how far it went. Well, we will never know how far Belle's balloon would have gone, since she found letting it go far to traumatizing. Here are a few pictures of the event.
Thumb sucking always makes balloon launches much better.
Unfortunately it appears that Rose is picking her nose in this picture. Oh well, won't she appreciate this picture when she is older?
Waiting for the balloon launch, and Belle so unknowing of what is to come.
Belle running away from the balloon launch when she saw everyone let theirs go. Much to emotionally painful to say goodbye.
Going, going and gone! Don't they look so cool.......
