"Michelle? Do you think you might be able to pick up Riley a little early today? We're having field days for the end of the year and here's how it goes. Every four minutes, a loud siren sounds and we switch activities. Most of the activities require hand/eye coordination and a good sense of where you are in space. There's lots of dancing and it's really wild and crowded with kids bumping into one another. Did I mention how loud it is? She's had one pretty good meltdown already. Soon it will be time for the kickball game. She really doesn't want to play kick ball."
"Thanks Patti. I'll be right there."
