back to school today
back to the kinder
who are not limited by conventions
and are open to the future.
what an honor and a pleasure
to have spent two days
with intelligent caring educators from many places
share, discuss, question, wonder, listen,
learn from each other
respectful, compassionate, joyful, creative, curious, playful, democratic classrooms
for young children
where they begin
to discover and grow a love of learning
about the world near and far
preparing them for what is beyond
this comforting place
they call school.
“the limit of your present understanding
is not the limit of your possibilities.”
someone at the snack table
noticed something and shared it with others
they all tested it out
made a conclusion
and a perfect decision.
they said that if the carrots made a crunchy sound and snapped
they tasted better and would eat them
if they didn’t, and were bendy
they would donate them to scruffy the guinea pig.
a win- win
a perfect and brilliant solution
and a great life lesson for the future foodies.
“a good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers. “
