I was intimidated and a little overwhelmed until a fellow worker reassured me that the kids just want to have fun!
Here are the teen helpers who were needed to shepherd the kids around and help with activities.They also did decorating, clean up and everything else needed.Each day there was a short meeting to discuss how it was all going and to talk about the plans for the next day.

So last night Jeff and Meg traveled out at 11:45 to be right on time for the midnight release. They weren't the only ones either! Apparently, the original Starcraft came out about 12 years ago and this new version has been all the hype for 6 long years. Unfortunately the Walmart lady COULDN'T FIND the box this hot commodity was shipped in. There were about 5 other customers waiting including a worker bee from Sheetz who was sent there by his boss to snag a copy. The race was on to get to the other Walmart! There everyone was able to get their hands on a copy but the clerk couldn't find the posters that were supposed to go with it. Darn...

Last weekend, Jeff was able to pick up a used ATV for a good price and now can join his Dad for weekend fun.
He shared it with Tim who has a lot of experience riding them.

I was trying to be thorough and "'detached from things" as I gathered items to donate and put these lawnmowers into the back of the van.They stayed there overnight. These little Tyke mowers have been in our backyard for 20 years!!!!They still look and function well.These guys are their original owners:
Fortunately, the plastic mowers were liberated from the van by one of the kids and put back into the yard before I drove away to the rummage sale collection spot!
It seems that this guy has now taken to "mowing" a little in the evenings:
