As one of the school faculty my job was to act as a chaperon, helping students find their way to the equipment rental location and then out to the lesson meeting points. After that I was free to roam the grounds taking photos for the yearbook and generally enjoying the scene. It was a gorgeous winter day with bright blue skies, crisp white snow, a mild breeze and just the right temperature.
Then I got the call that parents hate to get; Paul had broken his arm. The rest of the day and the next morning was spent getting his arm x-rayed, seen by a doctor, and put in a proper cast.
Thankfully, it was a simple break and on his left (non dominant) arm.
And the cast is Paul's favorite color --green!
