Drive in...

The sixth grade started off their year by making a deal with their teachers that if they were prepared everyday, and earned sufficient points by doing so, that they would receive a killer party at the end of each term. Thus far, Kenna has earned her way in to every party. This last party had a drive-in theme. The kids were asked to build cardboard cars that they could wear over their shoulders. Kenna and Casey spent the better part of a Sunday afternoon cutting, gluing, and constructing the perfect convertible. I then took it to the garage where we spray painted it baby blue (Kenna's favorite color). From there it was all up to her to decorate and customize it just in time for the big night.

They were invited to the school from 6:30 pm till 9:30 pm to partake in the festivities. They had to pass a drivers test (obstacle course using flat scooters), earn a drivers license, watch a movie, and participate in an optional demolition derby (killing the cars their parents spent countless hours building!).

When Kristi and I got there to pick them up it was complete chaos. They had a great time running the pitch black halls of the school where the boys were going out of their way to scare the girls. They had pop and popcorn for their movie and danced to Mrs. Porters i-pod collection. These kids truly lucked out with the wonderful teachers they have. Congrats Kenna, you are a remarkable student!
