Not quite as "quippy" as my husband, but I figured "Hey, everybody else is doing it" and "Yes, mom, I would jump off a bridge. . . "

C.R.A.Z.Y. . .
Today begins my crazy summer! I have 77 field trips in the next 10 weeks. I will make more popcorn and cotton candy than I care to count. I will drive hundreds of miles in a mini-bus. Over those weeks, I will be burnt, tanned, hot, soaked, sweaty and exhausted. It is a fun and tiring and crazy job. Out of those field trips, I will go to the pool 40 times. . I am excited to get this summer schedule underway. Today we go to a local bowling complex that has a 3 story "ball pit" with air cannons that "fire" balls, a large funnel that you can fill with balls and "shoot" up into the air and huge slides. It is a blast! Then I am headed to my first pool trip of the year. Once I get over the trauma of being in a bathing suit in public it will be great. . . I love the water.
The crazy part is, I have been doing this portion of my job for 16 years and for the first time, I will have one of my own children on the trips. It should be fun!
