at the nature center for grandie v’s 6th birthday celebration

the scientist helps us to measure our wingspans

before we take a stroll outside to find this beautiful bird

rescued and healing a broken wing

 whose wingspan we hope will return one day

and we are grateful to have our wings.

wings.

Standard

kinders offer their presentations 

to

the other kinders

and to us

their teachers.

they are very excited

as

they tell us

all about

the animals

they have studied.

one teaches us about 

the colorful parrot.

another one asks

‘why do they fly?’

kinder answers

‘so they can see the world.’

in this moment 

of clarity and understanding

she has

traded places with us

and has

become the teacher

and

we learn so much from her.

“feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?”
