At school today we had a special speaker "Mr. Carlos" aka Chuck. He build houses and he came and talked to the kids and let them drill screws into a board and gave them all their own ear plugs. It was so fun and the kids were super into it. Me and Mindy needed that because man, this past week, bless their hearts, it has not been easy. It's like they can feel the Spring in their bones and they run and jump and scream and fight because all they wanna do is be set free. Which reminds of a quick story.
I have a hard time at school if some of the kids don't wanna stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. I understand that they are only 3 and 4 years old, but I want them to learn how to respect the flag and what it stands for. So I have been trying to teach them what it stands for. Today I had been asking them what they like to do? "ride bikes, eat food, play with friends." Were typical answers, so I was explaining that those are freedoms and we get to choose what we want to do, what we want to eat, who we want to play with and we owe that to soldiers and people who have stood up for us and sometimes not been able to return home to their families, so that we can have these freedoms. So anyways on the way to Warden to switch my sis-in-law for my Paisley and her Ashton, Ashton finished his nachos and he says, "Here Korbi, I finished my nachos because this is America and I can!" LOL Seriously, if it were all that easy.... And ladies and gentlemen, it is "all about the Climb...."
