And thus ends the last of the weekends with the unusual age groups.
Yes. This year, I’ve spent weekends with 8th graders, 8th graders again, 6th graders, the elderly, and this past weekend, 6th and 7th graders.
They’re actually quite fun.
This weekend was CHUSY Kadima Kallah. This was my fourth, as I attended it in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I always loved them then. I really looked up to the USYers there, and this time I was the USYer! That was so cool.
But the kids were semi-annoying this weekend, regarding the scheduling. We gave them all pretty detailed schedules, but they were SO anal about them. “OMG, it is 12:33, we are THREE minutes late for lunch!” “It is 11:40. I don’t know HOW we’re going to be able to get to Battle of the Sexes by 11:45. We’ll just have to skip the Haftarah and Musaf.”
But mostly, they were a lot of fun.
If you ever need a self-esteem boost, go hang out with 6th graders–they all think you’re soooo cool.
