Last night was the Air Force Ball. Since Joe was in Germany this week and I have nothing to wear to a ball that won’t make me look like a big, round, taffeta beach ball I decided to volunteer my time to watch the 21 children who needed supervision. Oh I wasn’t watching 21 children alone, all while 8 months pregnant – NO! I had 4 other ladies and 5 teenagers lined up to help with this fun evening. We had the elementary school media room all set up and a well thought out schedule of fun activities and games. But by the end of the night I think it’s safe to say Joe and I won’t be having 21 children.
By the end of the night everyone was in thorough melt-down mode so we had the kids gather on the floor, handed out bowls of popcorn and put in It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
End of the night tally –
Use of the 1st aid kit – none!
Crying children – 1 (a toddler who was sad to see his parents leave but started having fun about 20 min. later)
Time outs – 4 (1 little girl kicked a little boy, 3 little kids wouldn’t stop running in circles around the library and needed some quiet sitting time)
Overall it was a fun night for all!
