Whew ! When is Spring?
Today the kids have been a little on the loud side. In all fairness a LOT on the loud side. So…we decided to take a little walk to get the energy out. One the walk we looked for numbers, we were reminded the safe way to cross a street , we saw animal prints in the snow and we even ran from a dog. Well, we didnt really run…but we did turn around and go the other way a little more quickly. Mrs. Beth noticed a stray dog coming toward us from down the hill so we went the other way. As the dog got closer we talked about stray dogs and if we should pet them. I have to admit as he got closer my heart was pumping a little not knowing what he would do and I was already devising a plan in my head to get the children in a nearby fence and close them up until the dog was gone. But.. the children remained very calm and quiet and didnt look at the dog and we walked quickly away. He turned and went the other way. Even on spontaneous little walks you can learn so much.
