Today, Spencer came and did an assembly at the kids school. They were all so excited to show off their amazingly cool uncle (B actually came upstairs yesterday wearing 6 shirts. Every UofA and Bronco shirt he had. He was so upset when I made him cut it down. We compromised at 2). There were actually 3 assemblies that he did, each around 25 minutes. The first group was k-2, so the twins group. There is actually another relative in their class. Spencer's Cousin's son is also in B&L and Zach and Anna's class. At the start of the assembly, Spence asked for anyone related to him to stand up, and all the kids in the gym proudly stood up. Here is a picture of the 5 that actually were related.
During the assembly, CK got upet with me because I wouldn't let her have some snacks. She got mad and went off to pout. I snapped teh picture just a minute too late because her real pout face was gone, but still... here she is after she had secluded herself from the rest of us.
The 2nd group was 6-8. Here is Scottie who was proudly representing the family in that group.
3-5 was the final group. It was a 1/2 day so my mom had picked up my little brothers to come and watch the final group. This is Spence, Vasa (who celebrated his 15th bday today! just over 4 years since he's been here), Roman, Josh, and D
Here are the little kids who sat through all 3 assemblies. While they did get restless, they did pretty good. KL, Spence, Sam, CKThis is just a quick pick of him with the kids. He got 2 volunteers to come up and he let them try on some of his equipment from UofA. He had them put on his helmet, shoulder pads, etc and before each thing he put on, he said it represented one of the pillars of "Character Counts" (trustworthiness, fairness, responsiblity, etc... the big focus in our district).
After the assembly, he signed about a thousand autographs as kids were grabbing anything they could (literally, clothes, shoes, candy wrappers from their pockets, etc...) to get signed. He was a great sport and we are so thankful that he was willing to do it! Thanks, Spence!
