K's band is having a sound-a-thon at the end of the month. The plan is to make music for 24 hours straight, from noon Friday to noon Saturday. The kids will be playing in shifts and when it's not their turn, they'll be allowed to do pretty much what they want within a certain area of the school: eating, sleeping, playing Rock Band in the gym, or just talking. They're pretty excited about it.
Tonight, there was a meeting to discuss volunteers, food, supervision, etc. I volunteered to take the midnight to 7am shift. You know, when they're all bouncing off the walls and punchy and tired and keyed up and grumpy. There will hopefully be another parent there and mostly we'll just be keeping an eye on them, making sure they don't go running through the streets at 2am or do anything else stupid.
I hope I don't regret this.
