The camera may have said it was January 1, 2007, but the kids knew better. Today was FUN DAY at preschool. We're talking three different bounce houses (one was a Disney princess castle, oh yeah!), relay races, make-your-own ice cream sundaes, face painting, simon says, and more.
My favorite part was watching each class get to squirt Mrs. Jackie, the school director, as a reward for reaching their mission project fundraising goal. Mrs. Jackie looked genuinely shocked that it took less than a few minutes for a group of 5 year olds to make her look like she had just fallen into a pool. The 3 year olds weren't as quick on the draw and spent most of their time trying to figure out how to hold the water bottle and squirt it at the same time.
At one point Amanda became disoriented and scared in the bounce house maze and decided that fun day was "not any fun at all." Then she found out that her class was next up for ice cream sundaes and the day turned into "the best day ever."
