“Teamwork is the ability to work as a group toward a common vision, even if that vision becomes extremely blurry.”

TIME:  10:29 AM
PLACE:  Jr. High School
SUBJECT:  Water Balloon Blanket Toss : spot MonkeyBoy (in a red shirt on the left) and the yellow water balloon

The Jr. High had its annual Advisory Olympiad – an annual event consisting of 12 different teambuilding activities.  The students work with their fellow homeroom students to solve each challenge.  Parent volunteers (I was one of them) manned the stations.  I was in charge of event #3 – The Water Balloon Blanket Toss.  The objective:  To successfully toss a water balloon between blankets as many times as possible.  The group was divided in half, and each half holds a sheet taunt.  I place a water balloon on one sheet, then they launch the water balloon to the other sheet.  Points were awarded for each balloon that was caught without breaking.  I earned additional points for embarrassing my eldest daughter by giving her a big hug and kiss when her homeroom arrived.  In direct contrast to his sister, MB initiated his hug.
