Fireworks! So pretty. Had to laugh at the shower comment. A friend of mine has a son that went to a sleep away camp for the first time this year for 5 days. His bar of soap was unopened in his footlocker when Mom unpacked it. Ewww. So hoping there was community soap out there somewhere!

Cant wait for more!
I'm so glad I could add a smile to your day! I imagine the post-Disney blues are setting in!

The bus discussion cracked me up! Especially Q's reaction. He totally didn't mind.

I was glad that we were able to see the fireworks and there was one boy in particular who really wanted to see some, so I was happy for him.

Yikes!!!

Too funny about your friend's son. But only because I know I don't have to worry about my teenager. I knew he would be showering regularly on the trip.

I enjoyed the "bonus" fireworks.

Too funny! I'm cracking up at the non bathing stories. I'm trying to remember---your trip was in May/June....right? Uhm....Pretty warm outside...Yuck!

Glad Ms. Grouchy-Pants wasn't at the bus stop, so you could take all the pictures you wanted!

Yay for seeing Wishes!!! Well at a little of it. That story about that boy not showering was making me think about DS15's trip. He told me showered everyday (god I hope so!!) I do think the shampoo and soap were used up. Phew! Because I do need to remind him to shower especially in the summer!! ( I guess it's because it's so unstructured.

Just a little update on the job situation- got 2 rejections in the past week. Still waiting to hear from interviews I had last wk and yesterday. I just applied to 2 more yesterday and today. So I guess not all hope is lost. I hope I get a call for an interview very soon!! Since school starts on the 6th!!!

Yes, the trip was at the beginning of June. Not a good time to ignore bathing routines after being out in the heat all day long.

I enjoyed the unexpected view of the fireworks and I was glad I could take pictures without being criticized.

OOPS- didn't mean to put the scare into parents who don't accompany their boys to overnight trips.

Sorry to hear about the news on the job front. I'm really hoping all your hard work applying and interviewing will pay off soon.

Wow, I thought we started late on Sept 4. Do you get a Feb and April break in your district?

Most of the districts around here go back between the 4th and 6th. Sometimes like with my kids, teachers go back for 2 days then kids.
We do get Feb. and April vaca.-thank God for that!!!

I'm trying to stay optimistic about the job!! At least I've had some interviews. There's nothing worse than not even getting a chance to be interviewed.

BTW I look forward to reading your updates while having my breakfast each morning!

Showering - when I was a youngster (over 55 years ago) I had a pair of slacks and a striped polo shirt that I thought was the bees knees. I would come home from school every day and change out of my prissy dress (all girls wore dresses or skirts) and change into my "real" clothes. I never knew that my mom would wash them every other day because she would return them to where she found them. She used to have to fight with me to take baths as "I wasn't dirty". Now I assure you, climbing trees and defending forts does get one dirty. She reminds me of that now when I tell her we can't go somewhere until I get my shower.

Job front news - we just had two teachers resign because they got a better paying job and summers off (I'm the administrator in a residential private school). We don't start until the 4th. We were able to fill both positions with people we had interviewed for other positions. So even though it's almost Sept, I am keeping my fingers crossed you might hear good news shortly. Penny

Sorry for the radio silence yesterday folks! Having some connectivity issues, I think my wireless router is dying! My DH was able to give it CPR or some such thing (it is best that I don't watch when this happens), but it continues to go out unexpectedly.

Thanks for the nice words. Hopefully I'll get the next update before your breakfast and before I lose my connection again!!!

Continuing to send positive thoughts you way!

Too funny!

I was a tomboy myself. My mom made me wear dresses to school, too (ICK) except for days when we had gym. We had gym every other Tuesday. I told her it was EVERY Tuesday. HA!!!

Still thinking of sending along Flat Ben for the PIN meet, if it is not too late!!! I could either send it to you, or have him at the Beach Club front desk. I'll email you over the weekend to see if this will still work!!!

Up to this point many of you have been surprised and disappointed about some of the decisions (mistakes) I have made on this trip. I’m looking at YOU, Janet!

But here is the opportunity for the rest of you to lose all respect for me…

I now present: Bad, Bad Chaperone




When I got into bed, I texted my husband about our day- the time stamp was exactly midnight. I knew he wouldn’t see that text for hours, but I hadn’t really touched base with him since the afternoon. I was so tired that I actually fell asleep holding my phone.


“Ring!”

“Ring!”

The room phone rang. My roommate picked up the receiver and held it out.

“It’s for you. ”

“’Lo?”

“This is Q*. I threw up”

“Call housekeeping”

“I did”

“Call the nurse”

“OK”

Click.


I hung up on him!


And fell immediately asleep again. It didn’t occur to me until I woke up the next morning that I had no idea if the students actually knew the room number for the nurse. Once the kids had the magnets put up on their door, they were not supposed to leave the room, but this was a valid reason for him to go out. Did he know that?

The next morning, I found him and apologized profusely! He says he had eaten some of the fudge purchased that night at the MK and he thinks that is why he got sick. He was fine. I was an embarrassed wreck!


Bad, Bad Chaperone!

* yes, the same Q who flipped off the Buzz camera and doesn’t take showers


Next up: Wild Kingdom, and then we got to the park

Yes - I have completely lost all respect for you. Seriously, you must have felt so terrible. I know what its like to be in that "drifting off to sleep" state. It's the absolute worst time to be interrupted.

Glad Q was OK, but he is started to sound a little bit like a strange child. Just sayin.

Flat Ben is most certainly invited to the pin meet. My DH will be glad to meet him. He will also (if Ben wants to go) take him snake & spider hunting as one of his days he is heading out to find some wild life preserve to look for icky critters. We have 4 tarantulas in our basement bathroom (a room I don't use). We will hit all the rides but he will have to be content to ride on old lady rides. I do however love Buzz Lightyear and Toy Story Mania. Does he collect any special pins so we can be proactive in our pin trading . Seriously, I will pm you my home address. We leave next Saturday. We are staying off property Saturday night but will arrive at the BCV on Sunday (bright & early). I can leave him at a designated spot so he gets to travel with others after we leave.
Penny

btw - tomboy is a bit of an understatement for me. I had more bumps and bruises from doing things no "girl" would do. I even had a few fights with boys (and I won) Penny

Thank you for that coffee spewing moment Dee!



Aww, poor Q. One does wonder about some attention getting behavior..... Clearly your roomate must have been out of it as well, the words "call housekeeping" and "call the nurse" didn't register with them either.

One would hope in middle school he could figure out the room number. It is on the phone, and the door!

Did he call the nurse?

I know that out of it feeling, I swear kids have radar and know you are in that state and THEN get sick.

oMG that really made me laugh!! Shame on you! Poor kid. All the kids should have had the nurse's # in case of an emergency.

I got 2 calls today for 2 more interviews next week!!!
I am so excited!!!!!!

I couldn't read your update during b-fast this morning b/c DS11's friend got dropped off at 8 so his mom could get to work. He was going to the beach with us. It was a GREAT day.... The beach AND interviews! Yay!!!
