today a ladybug stopped by our classroom veterinary clinic
the kinder docs looked at it closely with a magnifying glass
decided it might be having trouble flying
after much discussion, more close looks, a few notes on a paper, a phone call,
and a blood pressure check of one of the other docs
their good care and magic worked
and the ladybug flew away home.
