Today was my day to read to the Kindergarten Countdown class. I started by asking them what they learned today. Of course they were all trying to tell me at the same time. So cute. Anyway, our book today was My Farm Friends. It was pretty good timing since the 4H Fair is going on this week.
So we read about cows, sheep, roosters, chickens, horses and cats. When I asked what animals they had seen at the Fair, one little boy told me he saw bunnies. Another said cows. For some reason when I asked about pigs, they all said no. But then a little boy piped up with “I saw kangaroos!” When I asked if he saw them at the Fair, he adamantly said YES! I told him I’m glad he could recognize a kangaroo, but I was pretty sure there weren’t any at the Fair.
I just love my few minutes with these kids. They are so much fun. I think I’m going to see if I can continue once the school year starts.
Oh, and the best part today? The kids were sitting on the floor in a circle when I came in and one little girl looked up at me and said “I think your dress s beautiful. And your high heels.”
She was obviously in awe of being in the presence of a Queen. LOL!
Seriously, she was adorable.
I’m thankful for this opportunity. They are a bright spot in my otherwise crazy day.
