We had a pretty eventful day today: celebrating our BLC moms and dads (biological, adoptive, spiritual, metaphorical, etc.) with our BLC Parents Day 2013 Celebrations as well as welcoming our new BLC Council with an installation service.
The day started early for some in what is now lovingly known as “Emily‘s Sweatshop” (courtesy of Jason!). We had to roll stacks and stacks of newspapers into balls… which were then used for games later in the afternoon. Unfortunately for us, the air-conditioning in the room failed… (and yes, Emily got little kids to work too!).
Emily even found the time to have a little fun with one of her underaged “volunteers”! 😛
Mei Li set up a pretty neat altar decoration…
…and Aaron even came decked out in the latest fatherly fashion!
Of course, any celebration would be remiss without the obligatory fellowship meal – i.e. lots and lots of #omnomnom!!!
And, then, lots of laughter with games by Emily (the sweatshop did not labor in vain!)!
And finally, family photos for everyone!
A huge word of thanks to Jamie for organizing everything!
