a couple of enterprising 5-year olds

create the raised walkway

 many 3s, 4s and 5s

try it out

for quality control 

 offering their suggestions

when

they

or

the boards

fall down

rebuilding as they go.

while the kinders were playing a farm game

with crops and cash,

some sold

some bought

some traded.

i thought all were farmers

until one came to me 

to say:

“she doesn’t want to be a farmer. she said  she’s a jedi warrior!

that means she’ll be stronger than all of the rest of us!”

swafon.com

i told him that jedi and farmers are both very strong people.

both work hard and refuse to give up.

both try to do things peacefully.

and that

they could work together with no problem.

they would be good for each other.

they would help each other.

even a  jedi has to eat.

even a farmer has to stand up and be brave. 

and they became a very powerful team.

mama hangs on tight

as she

takes her

baby chicks

off to 

master

their moves

their kicks

their spins

their control

as they

jump and skip

through the city

over and under

everything

in their way

and

they can’t wait

to

unleash their power

so much energy

harnessed here

the speed of the boss is the speed of the team.

what makes a man?

Standard

 it took a small village of kinders to make a man.

Image

 

they hiked through the deep snow.

Image

 

they went in the playhouse to eat some snow and get pumped up about it.

Image

they worked hard to push heavy loads almost a big as they were.

Image

they built. and they built.

Image

and they moved mountains.

Image

and they crowned him with a prized possession.

Image

and we celebrated with a song and a dance around the man they created.

Image

 

and in the seventh hour, they rested. 

 Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;

indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

feliz ole?

Standard

Image

 

went to buy my teaching partners a little something with a mexican flair as part of their holiday gifts. ole, ole, ole!

 

 when i got home, actually put my glasses on, and went to wrap their gifts, i discovered that i had bought this. 

Image

 

when i gave them their gifts, they were not surprised and very understanding and said it had been a rough week and maybe firewater was more what they needed anyway. this is why we work well as a team.
