It is my first season instructing at the sailing center. The season has started out great. The kids were psyched to get out on the boats and feel the wind in their hair. We always start out with a few games dealing with boat parts and safety and the kids were really getting into it. During one of the games one of the kids jammed her finger, but she didn’t let on to it hurting. We went into some running and yelling games to let the kids get it out of their system, during this game I noticed that this girl was holding her finger and didn’t look comfortable when I asked her what happened and then took her in to get some ice on it. After we got some ice we started back to join the group. On the way back she tripped and skinned her knee. We went back to the office and got her all cleaned up. During this she said “this is the best day of her life” and that she was have a lot of fun despite the two minor injuries. It was great to hear that and made me feel even more proud to be a part of a great program that gets kids outside and enjoying the resources available to everyone.
