Our school has its own way of letting the students find out who their teacher is. The teacher shows up at your house during a specific time period to let you know you'll be in their class.
Well, last year we spent about an hour and a half with our noses smooshed up against foggy windows waiting. Finally as other kids in the cul-de-sac discovered their teachers, we ended up outside excitedly chatting (and waiting!) for our teacher to get there.
Sooooo, this year my neighbor gave me the idea of having a little grill session out front while we waited for the teachers. We ended up having more than our cul-de-sac show up.
He'll learn not to ask, "Is there anything I can do to help out?"
I think there was only one successful toss between partners.
Obviously they don't seem to mind.
What I thought would be a cute cake turned out looking more like a really pathetic triangle instead of a school pendant.
Lots of fun people. Plus, the losers behind the camera who weren't willing to get in the frame. You people....
Water balloons are always a good idea. They stayed up way past their bedtimes, but at least they didn't need to go home to take they're bedtime baths.
Anyway, after cooking 60 hot dogs and hamburgers, we all had full bellies and we were all excited for the school year to begin!
