In 5 days, I experienced:
- 1 sleepless night due to updates every 15 minutes from a student who couldn't sleep.
- 2 separate trips to the Alliston hospital.
- 3 phone calls to a parent before convincing her that she needed to pick up her son because the"slightly twisted ankle" she said he had when she dropped him off Monday morning was actually a broken foot (this is separate from the aforementioned hospital visits).
You know what else was nice?
|Walking along the Niagara Escarpment under the clear blue sky|
|This beaver dam/bridge.|
|The first flakes of the season.|
|This view from above. Can you spot the ant-sized students below?|
|This head-scratching sign in the Alliston Hospital parking lot.|
|...and this head-scratching sign in downtown Orangeville. |
Is this really so much a problem that they needed to create a sign?
The feeling of pride I had at the end was bigger than the fear I had at the beginning. That makes it worth it.
That pretty much sums up how I feel about my week at Mono Cliffs.
Count me in for next year!
