So, we’re on day three now and the kids come tomorrow! Today was our last full day of training and it was full! We planned activities for next week (I’ve got finger-painting with Jess, kickball with Allison, postcard making with Laura, and labeling things with Jess). I’ll go into great detail about each one as they come up. We went over medical things (which kids are on medications, when they have to take them, who’s allergic to what and etc.) did some staff d’s, and then after lunch did some “behind closed doors.” Oy, I still really hate that. It went pretty well though. Aaron and I spent most of the time trying to kill the two flies that were buzzing around and driving us crazy! Didn’t work though, we didn’t get them.
After that we had a small break before where Kim and I finished setting things up. Then we had our full staff meeting where Joe thanked us and such. I followed Dad back to his classroom and helped Becca for a bit, stopped by the office and then we had our “fancy dinner.” (It wasn’t really “fancy” dress, but nicer food). It was pretty good.
So I’m sitting at a table with Laura, Allison, Nicole, Kim, Matt W, Alex and Brendan and Alex asked Matt if he was playing Ultimate Frisbee, to which he turns to me and says, “are we going to the movies?” So, I turn to Allison and ask, “are we going to the movies?” Well, then everyone wants to go, so we made it a massive RA (and one TA) trip to the Chester 5 Cinema to see “Batman Returns” (I’ve already seen it, but it was fun). We ended up with 10 people and everyone really enjoyed the movie. It was great to just hang out too. Then we came back here, wandered over to the office (We got door stops! YES!), went over the information for our hall meetings tomorrow and then Alex and I went on a walk around campus. I’m still trying to figure out where to go and such, but the walk helped. I don’t know the names of anything, but I have the general idea of where everything is. J
Anyway, tomorrow the kids come and the adventures begin! So to bed I go to get some rest! Have a great night all! J
