Willy Wonka

Yesterday, I went with Peanut and some of her classmates to Jacksonville to watch a play at the Brit outdoor arena. It was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, done by 4th, 5th, and 6th graders from the area. They all go to one school and they have over 200 parent volunteers.
It was quite the entertaining trip. I learned quite a bit about 7th graders. Some of the children need a little extra supervision and someone to tell them that some things they say and do, just aren't cool! Well, leave it to me to not keep my mouth shut about this little boy who kept being so disrespectful! I thought for sure that all of Peanut's Classmates would hate me, but some of them actually told me thank you because he is out of control! Anyway, here are some pictures. Peanut and I had a great time together!

The gang that traveled by bus to the play.

The windows were open on the bus and the wind was whipping through the bus, so the girls put their seat up (they were sitting in the emergency exit) and sat on the floor, out of the wind.
It was a fun day for me and the girls, but it was a little challenging to meet some of the kids and hear the language and the song choices of these kids. It is rather alarming. I used to think, if my kid were in with this crowd or that crowd, then she should be OK. But, now a days, that is not necessarily the truth! It was enlightening and a little challenging. But, now I know how to pray for my girl.
We will be out of town this weekend for a softball tournament. Look for pics and stories on Monday. :~) Have a great weekend.
