It was utter chaos. The air conditioning was off. There were at least 900 parents in attendance, plus their nearly 500 kids. I kept losing one or both children in the crowds -- they were thrilled to be able to roam (and run!) freely at school, and to do so with their friends from other classes, and of course it is their school and a space they know so well and about which they have such a sense of ownership, but jeez it freaks me out to turn around and find them gone.
