Will Work For Somersaults

"The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us. When the world seems familiar, when one has got used to existence, one has become an adult."
~Eugene Ionesco

I noticed the preschoolers all sitting at circle time without me. Every now and then they hold their own class time routines and prove to be quite proficient at it.

"Okay, who here is grow-ed up?" The "teacher-child' asked leading the circle.
Everyone raised their hands.
"Good!" She clucked.
She quickly turned her attention to me as did the other children.
"Ms. Barbra?"
"Yes, Teacher?"
"Will you join us, please?"
"Thank you, I would love to come." I squeezed in on a carpet square.
"Now, that we are all here grow-ed children let's practice our somersaults!"

Hi VTK. It is a new picture. I am still figuring the whole thing out (Blogging) but this picture really reminded me of the joys of childhood.
Be Blessed :)
