carwash

On Saturday, Clara and Amy and I helped at a carwash for Margaret to raise money for her intern account.

^ This is what it looked like most of the time.  Holding signs, waiting for customers.

^ This was our entertainment.  That, and Margaret and Arielle dancing while holding signs.

^ All of us, minus Amy.

^ We stopped at Starbucks on the way home.
