Oh, these resourceful parents!  It was a bit much: there was a thunderstorm the night before, a tree was hit by lightning and fell over the play area where the party was planned, and the janitor had a family health emergency.  So this end- of-school party was moved into the gym, which could accommodate only one of the six huge blown up jumping monsters that had been ordered.  No matter, everybody had a good time at this enthusiastic school in River Forest.  I drew thirty kids in two hours and I’m grateful for a parent’s assistance in handling the line.  Thank you, Fatima!  Thank you, Beth! And thank you, Gina, for the heroic recovery in the wake of all the obstacles!
