  1. Awww, I loved my nine years of integrated preschool with ages 3-6 and 8 children in am and pm classes who were developmentally delayed with 4 “typically developing” kids. Which I think including “kids” could work well with your baby goats’ picture. 😊

      • It was a great change from middle school, where boys towered over me and occasionally swear words were used by those kids. When I see them now, in their careers, I pretend to not remember their faux pas, since I think middle and junior high school years are particularly challenging. Two grown adults (Kiana who cuts my hair and Eric who has done manager jobs in gas stations and quick marts, even apologized! I said I didn’t remember any such nonsense.)
        Point actually was that when I interviewed for the job with the superintendent, I made a joke: “If someone is going to go off and swear, stomp their feet or give me attitude, I’d rather that person was only waist high!”
