I got to work at 8:00 and thought we were leaving at 8:30. I'm so glad we didn't. Long story short, the thong part of my nice comfy flip flops broke. With no other pair of shoes and no one wearing my size, I had to hobble over to Wal-Mart to buy a pair of shoes. I've never understood how people can walk on asphalt or in stores without shoes on, but on Wednesday, I became one of those people. lol Yes, I went in the store with one shoe on and one shoe off. Thankfully I was able to quickly find a pair of deck shoes on clearance for $9.00, a pair of no-show socks, and some antibacterial wipes. I also got some sunscreen for another coworker and me to share. It was 100 degrees and we were scheduled to be outside much of the time.
The students toured the industrial arts classes, robotics, electrical engineering, welding, and also the nursing department. We even were able to go inside the "hospital" and see mannequin patients. One woman was in labor. Later that day I saw one of the nursing students and she told me the woman had a baby boy. Fascinating!
After lunch the kids participated in a scavenger hunt. Faculty members were not allowed to tell them the answers but were able to give hints or help them find a particular landmark. In spite of the heat, the kids enjoyed themselves. As for me, Gatorade never tasted so good.
One highlight for me was that I saw a few of the students I taught in 5th grade who were now in nursing school. They were just as happy to see me as I was them.
Tomorrow will be the last day of camp for this week. So back to editing photos and working on a slide show for the camp graduation next week.
