On Friday mornings I volunteer at my older son's school in the Challenge Lab. Students who have completed their work for the week or scored high marks on a test come in and play enrichment games while their class reviews the needed material. I enjoy the time out of the house, and the chance to be in the classroom with students (without the obligation of returning to teaching full-time.) I enjoy seeing the staff that I once worked with and getting to know the Challenge Lab teacher better and learning about new projects. But I LOVE at the end of my volunteer time-slot when the first grade drop-ins walk through the door and I see my son's smiling face. I love building a marble run with him and his friends or participating in whatever other activity they might choose to do. I love my boy, and getting to spend time with him in his element makes me love Fridays.
