Then it really got busy. Student council had planned a "sleep-over" for the first school day, so most of the students stayed for fun and games.
They stayed out at the field and watched a movie on the baseball diamond--"Faith like Potatoes".
I awaited their arrival, which turned out to be rather late.
There were girls in sleeping bags all over the living room, and in one of the dorm bedrooms.
They didn't seem to mind the crowded conditions.
This one slept in the closet.
And this little prima donna claimed the only bed. She's another one of my "grand-students". I taught her mother and all of her aunts just a few years ago (at least it seem like a few years.) She's irrepressible at a slumber party. But, that's the way life really is.
There were fish and geese in the water, but that didn't deter too many would-be swimmers. Most of the students piled in.
Then, as the temperature began to climb, we all piled back into the vehicles for a short trip into Lawton.
As they stalked virtual prey in virtual jungles
It was exhausting. . .
We finally got all the intrepid explorers back to school around five o'clock. I think they had a terrific time.
Monday, we start real school in a real world.
