Recess is my favorite class

The Tour is taking some down time after back-to-back school stops in the Milwaukee area, the first at Riverside University High School and then at Indian Hill Elementary.

At Riverside, the players spoke to 450 freshman students about making good decisions and how to benefit one’s community by lifting up individuals as opposed to tearing it down by bullying.

At Indian Hill, the players helped serve lunch and also played with the young students at recess. Swings, soccer and jump rope provided much needed exercise for the guys.

“That was a blast,” said Mason Crosby. “We’ve been on the bus and inside buildings for much of the trip, so to be outside and see the energy of the kids was fun.

“They had some good little athletes out there. They were like piranha the way they surrounded you. There’re pretty small too, so I had to make sure I didn’t elbow them or step on them.”

Was he nervous serving lunch?

“Each tray has a certain compartment for each food, so I was trying to get it right for the kids because they were so serious coming through the line,” he said. “Once a piece of steak was in the wrong one…it threw me off. I had never served lunch before, so that was fun.”

After a nice lunch at the Vintage Café in Cedarburg, the crew will rest up for tonight’s party at Grafton High School to benefit Portal, Inc.
