My Class, Of Course!I've been teaching a workshop this week with 3-5 year olds. It's been a long time since I worked with the tiny tots. They are just delightful. Funny too! Little Kaitlyn, all 20 pounds of her, is full of *****. Yesterday, out of the blue, she asked me "How come you are always in charge?" I answered, "Sometimes I wish I wasn't."
We have been drawing animals all week. Today's lesson was a turtle. It's good to have a prop to enhance the class, especially with the wee ones. I had a fun story to read and a little Beanie Baby turtle. As I was backing out of the drive to head to class, I noticed something in the front yard. Hmmm. I stopped the car and went to investigate. It was a turtle! A pretty big one too. How cool is that??? I put him in a box, grabbed a few pieces of romaine, and off he went to drawing class. Of course, the children adored him. The distraction made it more difficult to get our work done. Fine by me.
When it was time to go home, Kaitlyn's mom said "Tell Mrs. Lilt 'thank you' for bringing the turtle today."
Kaitlyn smiled "Thank you, Mrs. Lilt. I'm glad you are in charge,"
