Children of the Corn Part II

Children of the Corn , Part II

We got back on the bus and started rolling toward our primary destination. North Park Mall. Mall to the Stars. Where all field trips go. Next time, I am going to Renaissance. I swear to goodness.

Anyway, we got to the mall and pulled around to the back next to the food court. Literally, there were seven school buses and two charter buses. Evidently some sort of choir competition.. Somewhere. Our 20 kids were outmatched. They were mannerly, courteous, quiet and I was so very, very proud of them.

All the other kids on the other hand were loud, spoiled , etc. When it comes to the real things that matter, our kids rose to the challenge. They ate everything at the mall, down to the morter between the joints. Three cooks crawled away to die from exhaustion and still they ate. What they couldn’t eat, they took back to the high school. Governor Bryant declared it a “National Disaster Area.” Mostly due to the excess wrappers on the mall floor.

All things considered it was fabulous trip and it was all due to our friend and colleague, Carol Anne Drane who works in Simpson county at the Votec Center. Thanks Carol Anne. We love you and miss you!
