May 17 – Kickball Chaos May 17, 2012

Today my cute 5th grade class played kickball with a neighboring class.  I was in charge of the girls’ game.

Plus, the opposing team looked like this:

My team looked like this:

That’s right – I somehow managed to end up with an entire team full of girls blessed with what I thought was my own unique combination of uber-competitiveness and total lack of athletic ability.  The final score was 15 – 11.  We lost.  I jammed a finger.  Violence nearly broke out among the ladies.  The girls returned to the classroom covered in mud and tears.

They can’t wait for a rematch.
