Today might be the most fun I have had the entire semester.
Lindsay had me and Shannon report to McIntire Elementary at 7:30am. This school was SO NICE. I know that I say that about all the sites we go to but wow. Everything was just so new and colorful, I cant get over it.
We were going to be making no-blender smoothies for the kids in before school care to try. The recipe was super simple: Strawberry yogurt and grape juice. Whisk it together, DONE. I tried it, they honestly tasted like one of those Danimals (I’m showing my age, aren’t I?) that I used to drink when I was little. We put them in 2oz cups and let them chill in the freezer until it was time to serve them.
At 8:30, we took the tray out of the freezer and let everything up on the table. We got swarmed by kids trying to get their chance at free food. We had surveys that they could turn in for a chance to win a tshirt. A lot of the kids needed help reading or filling out their surveys, and this was probably the best part of the whole morning. We were asking them if they liked the smoothie, if they would want to see smoothies served at breakfast more often, and just for fun, we wanted them to come up with a creative name for it. We got some really great ones, I expected nothing less.
If you know me, you know that I much rather prefer working with the older population than young kids, but today may have changed my mind a bit. I had such a good time talking to the kids, helping them out, and hearing the cute stories they were telling me.
Shannon and I will be going back to McIntire at the end of the semester to do a Zumba class with them and we cannot wait for it!
We got back over to the high school around 9:30. We had a pretty chill rest of the day. Lindsay came in to talk to us about the upcoming weeks. We won’t be going in next Tuesday since its election day. We will do an online assignment from home instead. Finally, Lindsay informed us that she was leaving at 12:30 so we were getting out earlier than usual. I really should have kept count of the amount of times Shannon and I said “This is the best day ever”.
