Wachter Wagon Grammar School Club Notebook

The big girls' room is still under construction.  This weekend their project is to clear off their shelves and pack up things they will not be incorporating in their made over room.  Ultimately, we would like to put some paint on the walls one of these days.  This step was supposed to be finished before Easter.  Well, really, this room was supposed to be finished by Easter weekend.  But a big pile of wood in the front yard derailed the whole project.  But let us not digress.

This afternoon in their sorting and cleaning and putting away and packing up, Kaitlin found an old notebook entitled the "Wachter Wagon Grammar School Club Notebook."  This dates back to 2007.  If you are up for a laugh or want another reason to believe the old Wachter gang are a bit more than wacky read some on.  This is typed exactly as it appeared in the notebook.
Wachter Wagon club founded May 12, 2006, Friday.
