For as ridiculous as today was though, it came along with some pretty hysterical moments, here are some of my favorite quotes from the day:
"If I had 3 wishes I want to be a werewolf so that I can eat people because I think that would be really cool"
After I attempted to lay my head on Noor's lap, "I'm not a pillow! I'm a buffalo!"
The second we got on the bus and got seated, Brian very matter of factly says, "Ok Mrs. Richards, I'll just let you know when I feel like I'm going to throw up." Uhhhhh please don't throw up?
"I'm going to read your mind!" puts ear to my forehead "oh weird, it sounds dusty in there."
Inside the cave, "THIS LOOKS LIKE THE DEVILS HOME!"
"Can you lick my armpits for me?"
While trying to make the point the none of the students know my first name, I asked, "What is my first name?" response: "SPAGHETTI!" Duh. Spaghetti Richards is definitely my name.
On the bus with my boys....

|In the cave, iphone flash that makes everyone look scary|
The waterfall would have been way cooler to me if I didn't also come with an artificial light show. The blue/purple/red/green light was a little hokey. But overall it was a really beautiful sight.
Another one of the better things from today is that the kids revealed to me that they believe our newest employee, Jon, is a vampire. No joke whatsoever. They truly believe he is a real live vampire. Once this was made known to me, I spent the rest of the day exploiting it. How is he not melting in the sunlight? Well obvious, he has sunglasses on. Will he attack us and try to suck our blood? Only if you scare him, or make him really mad. Be VERY CAREFUL around him. I also told them that when we got into the cave he would turn into a bat (this may have contributed to the screaming, oops). I laughed about this A LOT today. Especially when one of the kids told me that he made a wish at the waterfall and couldn't tell me what is was but he wanted to tell the vampire since he's not alive and it doesn't count :) I love their little minds hahahahaha
This is my job, and I kinda love it. Not always in the moment, but looking back, I can't help but smile haha
