Students quickly learned that when you are walking approximately a half mile a day to get to classes, you better be wearing comfortable shoes. The "cute" heels and dressy shoes are out. Most students don tennis shoes or flip flops. This sophomore's feet just made me happy!Rain showers add a new dimension. Since they are better prepared this year, the showers haven't dampened spirits. There is less complaining, and they just seem to take it in stride. One girl told me that she hoped it rained soon, as she had a leopard print umbrella that she couldn't wait to use.
On rainy days, the cheerleaders don't want to get their new cheer shoes wet, so they don flip flops with their uniforms. They may not be in the traditional uniform, but a lot of traditions have undergone a change around here.
A lot of students purchased rain/snow boots over the summer. There are some darling ones making their way around trailer school.
Our kids are so adaptable. One boy remarked that he never wanted to go to school in a building again. He likes going outside between every class and hiking across the campus. He thinks a regular school would be boring. My thoughts: "Bite your tongue, son!" That, and "We'll talk again when the windchills hit -5."
