The Final Days

... of our Vacation silly!

Today we took the kids to a new school. The school was the Fourth Ward School and it was tucked way up on a hillside in Virginia City, Nevada.

As you can see, the kids were surprised that we were going to transfer them. Effective immediately.
Some of them took the news with pleasure!

The teacher began to take attendance. He was sort of small, but he had quite a commanding attitude, so nobody talked back.
Except one girl. And she was punished accordingly.

Typing class looked like it was going to be tough.

I got to pick my own machine, so I tried my best to show the kids how easy it could be.

Luckily for the kids, it turned out, the Fourth Ward School hadn't accepted any new students in quite a few decades years, so we were out of luck. But we did get to ring the bell on our way out the door! This, unfortunately, attracted a few bad guys.

As you know, bad guys are attracted to ringing school bells.
(They are?)

They were so stupid they weren't even sure what they were supposed to be doing.

They tried to put their masks on so we couldn't ID them, but like I said... they were lacking in brains.
By this point, we were no longer afraid of them.
That's when the sherriff showed up and saved the day.
Tomorrow: We go HOME!

We used to love going to Virginia City when we would visit Lake Tahoe. Loved seeing the photos!
