It was Field Day today, which is nothing but a day of games and "fun" at the end of the school year. Just about every elementary school does one. And the picture that jumped into my mind was the beach day episode of The Office. Field Day is the Beach Day of my profession.
My job was just to write down scores. 40 yard dash, long jump, bean bag toss, base run, etc.
I also did a lot of yelling instructions.
Our last station was water dodgeball. The kids decided to seek their revenge on me. Apparently I've forced them to do schoolwork all year. They were vicious about it and I was soaked and chased and I actually ran quite a distance and they followed. I've never seen this group of kids commit to a task in such a way.
Now I'm tired, sunburnt, and I still feel gross from dirty dodgeball water even after a shower.
