I am standing in my classroom surrounded by....well, children who have been cooped up and are just a little crazy.
I am standing, staring out the window. I am thinking how amazing it looks outside. The sky is a gorgeous shade of blue....the sun is boldly out and the light reflecting off of unused play equipment is mesmerizing....the trees are swaying in unison.
A little boy slides in beside me....cuz this is what little boys who have been cooped up do...they can no longer walk anywhere, they must slide.....
3GB: Mrs. Hays, it looks real pretty outside.
Me: Yep. It does.
Moment of silence....just a moment....cuz little boys who slide everywhere only have a moment of silence.....
3GB: Just by looking, you would think it was a beautiful day outside. Instead its a cold and nasty day.
3GB: That's why you don't judge things by how they look on the outside, right, Mrs. Hays?
Wise words. Just sayin'.
