Tonight is a parent teacher conference night which means I am here until 7:30. I have no conferences but need to be here- cotractual thing. It is suppose to snow prettty bad tonight and most likely school will be canceled or delayed. I had a bunch of dough that would be on the way out past tomorow. There is a boys basketball game tonight. I talked to the people running the snack bar earlier today and asked if they would be interested in selling our pizzas at the freshman and varsity games. They usually use Donatos and when I explained our pies they said lets do it. My main pizza girl Paige agreed to stay here and help. Since she has mastered tossing pies I can't keep her away from them
There is a regular education girl that volunteers in our class and she agreed to come too. So her and Paige made a bunch of pizzas for the freshman game and we have an hour to kill before making the varsity game pies. This girl has been trying like all heck to get Paige to do things with her after school. Paige has never hung out with a person that isn't in jail, addicted, violent, so such a thing is quite scary to her. They are planning an ice skating night together soon and I suggested they go to the game and come back in time to make the pies. Paige said no but I looked at her and said come on give it a shot. So off they went arm in arm laughing......... It brought tears to my eyes. The regular education girl is very popular and a sports standout. She is kind beyond words and has found a calling with my kids. So Paige is out with her as I type watching a high school basketball game in a safe, happy, loving, situation. It all came about via pizza
PS: The booster club that sells snacks wants us to make pizzas at all their events. They all said they never tasted anythng like our pies. That felt great. Also a NJ native drove all the way in from Columbus (40 miles) to buy his bi-weekly pie. This adventure just keeps getting better! Pizza crosses all lines of life. Everyone loves pizza and we are connecting my kids with the world via it!
