Scramble, stir the pot and scramble again. Just like making scrambled eggs, that's what I did yesterday. My plan for the three hour slow time to take pictures didn't quite work out so well.
Another 350 kids and parents came in all at the same time ... 8:30. We don't even open until 9:00. I try to stay organized, but apparently I'm the only one who does. Those in charge seem to have no clue how many kids they have and never seem to collect the right amount of money.
I scrambled to find two tractor drivers, taking the Time Travel Tractor around a few times myself. No lost kids today thank goodness, but the bounce pillow was soaking wet from dew since all the overhead covers were gone. That took 30 minutes to clean off so the kids could bounce.
Finally, with a big sigh, I escorted the last few groups out at 12:30. They were told we close at 12:00. No one ever wants to leave since it's such a nice outdoor space to be in. One more thing? Everyone, kids, teachers and parents, get a pumpkin before they leave. That's 3-400 we pass out!!
I got home just in time to let Cooper out and slurp down some of my butternut squash soup. Then I raced back to the Patch. We were completely out of gem mining bags and expecting a record number of people at 3:30.
