It’s not every day that you get to play with fire and shoot your students.
I’m so thankful that I work at a school where community is celebrated, where teachers and students and families do life together, where I can know more about my kids than just their reading level.
Recently, we decided to play a teachers vs. students paintball game.
Before the game, we teachers went to a teppanyaki restaurant in the same area. The food was cooked right in front of us, and it was delicious! Rachel and I had some fun playing around with my camera, and we ordered a banana flambé for dessert – mostly to see the fire that ensued 🙂
Also – check out the hairdos on the two girls that sat across from us. It’s like we’re in Whoville!
Unfortunately, it was raining. And had been all morning. There was just a bit of water at the paintball field.
Despite the fact that the rain had scared off a good number of both teachers and students, we still had a great time. We had to wait a while for the downpour to at least slow down, and found ways to amuse ourselves in the meantime. After a bit, though, we convinced the people in charge to allow us to play in the rain. Three games later, I realized just how much I missed paintballing. I was impressed by the field here, and by the prices – I would recommend it!
