Our last session of spring semester! Let’s craft our best obstacle course of the whole year. Bring any supplies you’d like to add into it + let’s go!
We’re going to do a water-themed day instead of the field day we had planned. Squirt/water guns of all kinds! A few water balloons are okay, but be prepared to clean up the pieces afterwards. I’m bringing a hose + sprinkler for the front yard of the church, too. Swim gear + towels are necessary. We’ll talk boundaries before we start + set up a war zone on poop hill + beyond. 3 quick rules:
- No face hits. Ever. If you hit someone in the face by accident, make sure they’re okay.
- No guns + no dripping in the church! Please use a towel before going inside.
- Respect the safe zones – we’ll mark them out with chalk + discuss in advance. The penalty for spraying people in the safe zone is usually a break, especially for repeat offenders.
I am bringing a xeroscape, bee-friendly plant for each kid to add to the gardens around the church. If they’d like to plant it themselves, yay! If not, we parents can do some planting too.
Lunch on your own, but let’s aim for a 1 o’clock sundae break. If everyone brings an ice cream they like + two toppings, we should have PLENTY of choices. Monica’s grabbing sundae cups/spoons/cheap toppings at the $1 store. We’ll set up a table at 1 o’clock for the best ice cream celebration + sit on blankets to enjoy it together.
Don’t forget to grab your trophy on the way out today! (Leftover trophies = trash.)
Lastly, we do have some surplus money at the end of this semester. If you haven’t already, please fill out this form to let us know how you’d like to spend it.
