Overheard at School


I had to laugh out loud with this child last Thursday. We were walking back to the building from recess and he came up to me with a big smile. He continued to grin while he told me, "It was a great day today!" I was smiling by now and asked, " Why is that?" Still grinning from ear to ear he says, "Three girls were chasing me on the playground." He was such a happy little camper.
It wasn't so much the words as the combination of the grin and the enthusiasm with which he spoke mixed with those words that made this funny. Priceless.
