"Ok, so you'll be here at 9:00, we'll all be waiting for you. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow"
I could not believe my ears. As I walked away, I thought to myself what better thing could I have possibly done with my time.
Have you ever felt so happy you didn't know what to do? Have you ever felt so full of joy that you feel you might burst if you don't give a little shout? Well that is how I felt today when I watched two little girls get on the bus...my bus...all because I gave one hour of my time...
One of the many homes which had its roof blown off
I think this is absolutley amazing!
Well I can't believe it...the little town of Chesterton Indiana made national news. Yes, we had a tornado. But somehow, through the tornado sirens, roofs being blown away, and trees being uprooted, I missed it. You see I was at home, wondering why in the world the electricity went out. I mean it wasn't raining that hard when I had left work just 45min earlier. My parents then decided to take a drive around to see what was gong on. When they returned home I realized how bad this "little rain storm' had been. The middle schools roof had been blown away, trees had been uprooted, windows were blown out of buildings, vehicles were being destroyed from flying debree. I still can not believe that I actually had a tornado in the town where I lived, and Ididn't even realize it....

However, the most dangerous thing that can possible happen at preschool, is a simple game: Hide and Go Seek. Through my 15 months of "service" I have learned how terrible those words really are. I have learned to never, never, never, agree to play that awful game. Kids are all to good at that game....
Now at the end of the day, as every child's parents come, they all give me a hug good bye..now how many you have such great job like mine? The job of a preschool teacher can be very stressfull at times, but all in all it is a very rewarding job that I would not trade for anything!

On the very first ride Christina and I both got sick to our stomachs. As we staggered off the insane ride, we shook our heads in unbelief wondering, "why in the world did we just spend $22 on this bracelet." Although we felt sick we decided we must proceed on...after all we had spent $22, and we weren't going to waste it. One of the next rides we went on was the Inverter. Not only did this ride hurt by back, leg, and stomach, but at the top of the ride Christina's cell phone slipped out of her purse and went crashing to the ground. So needless to say on that ride we lost an appetite and a cell phone. As we walked off the Inverter Christina and I once again shook our heads and wondered, "why in the world did we spend $22 ...what a waste...look what it had gotten us so far."
Finally we learned our lesson, we were done with those crazy rides, we would ride something much more calming, something we knew we would not get sick on...The Swings. However, for some reason even the slow circling motion of the swings made me a bit woozy.
Then I saw it....
I saw what all the wise people in this world were doing..watching the crazy, foolish people...like Christina and I, ride the rides. I watched as they smiled and ate their corn dogs, elephant ears, funnel cakes, carmel apples, etc... They smiled as if to say, "I would love to see you try to eat this now. You are so dumb, I can't believe you spent $22 on that little yellow bracelet."
