Yesterday was orientation day at my husband’s school. Every year the senior class has the opportunity to plan a day of fun, games, activities and also to choose a theme. So this year my husband, the school’s headmaster, was kidnapped. A video was shown in assembly of him tied up in a chair with tape over his mouth. The student body broke up into “tribes” and competed throughout the day to determine the tribe that was most qualified to save him.

So this morning I found some plastic grocery bags in the laundry room filled with tablecloths safety pinned together, a belt, a fleese jacket - all covered with shaving cream. Hmm... I asked Joe about that. At the end of the day the faculty and staff surprised the kids by putting on Kilts (hence the safety pinned tablecloths and belt) and running down the hill, Braveheart style, waging a war on the students with shaving cream.

Now, this is a high level academic college prep school. These kids are destined for ivy league colleges. These are our future scientists, doctors, lawyers, business leaders. They carry high grade point averages. Many of them become PhD’s. But, Joe believes that children need to play. They need to be artistic. They need to allow all their creativity to shine. So, that goes for the kids, but....the teachers and administrators need that too, like this one

Love it
