Mouths of Babes
These pictures are a part of a slide show I share with kindergarten after we sang a song about trains from South Africa. They are of me in 2002 when I spent 6 weeks of the summer there.
Here is what kids spontaneously said:
"You were beautiful then."
"You were so pretty"
"That must have been a LONG time ago."
Here is what I heard.
"Hey Mrs. Sophanne, you could stand to lose a few!"
"Wow, you got old fast."
They are only 6 years old. Still that did not prevent me from having the desire to shout to all of them "YEAH??? Well, I'm HAPPY now!!!!"
