Frolicking with Five Year Olds….

by Lisa Donovan

I just spent the morning at my son’s school helping out with an animal project.  What fun!  I had no idea that being around ten to twelve five and six year olds could be so much fun!  They are so ripe - the things they say and the way they see the world is remarkable…  Their minds have such a freshness about them and, god, the way they look at you when they think you know something about the world is unbelievable..  And they do think you know something about the world… They have no idea that, as an adult, I am basically a failure at most things that are seen as typical “responsible” adult type behavior.  How amazing.

And it greatly eased my son’s anxiety about our move.  He has been displaying some ill effects from all the packing and stressful situations that come with it..  It was good to just get away and play for awhile.

Of course, in my normal habit of thinking everything is a sign for something larger, I know think that I want to teach kindergarten.  One day with them and I feel like I would be the best kindergarten teacher in the world.  But, I really do think it is something I would enjoy rather thoroughly.  You could make it so fun for them (and for you)….  Just a pipedream for now, I suppose.  But it was something that definately made my day.. Maybe I should just leave it at that.  Maybe not.
