what’s left behind by the kinder after week one.

firsts are best.

not this year’s class, but quite similar.

firsts are best because they are beginnings.”

in line.

Standard

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.’

facts.

Standard

joyful young scientist

teaching and demonstrating

for even younger scientists

ends his hands-on physics and chemistry lessons

with a show-stopper

a fog-shooting cannon

crafted from a garbage can

and the crowd realizes how much they love science

and simply cannot get enough. 

“facts are to the mind what food is to the body.”
