Every Monday afternoon I volunteer in Emma's classroom. Unbeknownst to me, today was Field Day for Kindergarten through Second graders. I just spent and hour and a half yelling at, er, cheerleading and herding about a thousand and two kiddos around a circle as they balanced cups of water on their heads. My vocal chords are not happy with me.
I also got many enthusiastic hugs from the kids that know me (and a few that just felt like hugging). So I got a bit wet. Then I handed out popsicles. So I got a bit sticky. Fun times!
I'm going to miss this class of Emma's though. They are a great bunch of kids. I never pictured myself as a room mother, but I have loved it. Can't wait to see if it works out next year!
