back to school today
back to the kinder
who are not limited by conventions
and are open to the future.
what’s left behind by the kinder after week one.
“if you focus on what you left behind,
you’ll never be able to see what lies ahead.”
not this year’s class, but quite similar.
“I’ve always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school.
firsts are best because they are beginnings.”

one kinder who has created his own atlas
about the world he’s discovered
by reading books.
and the Dinos are standing by too
just taking it all in.
“the wide world is all about you:
you can fence yourselves in,
but you cannot forever fence it out.”
-j. r. r. tolkien
on the first day
after a long winter break
the kinders (and we) are back at it.
“well it’s life, back to the salt mines.”
sweet kinder spends her free choice time playing with the doll house.
when i stop over for a visit and ask why all the people are facing one way
she tells me they are waiting in line for the one bathroom.
(if you look closely, all the way to the right,
you’ll see the one toilet with someone sitting on it,
as well as a chef serving food out of a window,
and more people and animals scattered around downstairs)
what an amazing real world scenario.
how can i not love every single day of my job?
‘waiting in line is a great opportunity to meet people, daydream, or play.’
getting used to being back on a school schedule.
kinders arrive today!
