Glasses & Singing

Part of my job is to stand in the hallway in the mornings monitoring students on the way to class. I hear some interesting conversations down there sometimes! This morning, Blinky (you'll understand in a minute) came out from eating breakfast. Blinky is a 2nd year 1st grader. He hugged me and the counselor and then asked her if he could have her glasses! She wears reading glasses - kinda old lady looking ones. She asked why he wants them and this is his response (I love it!) - "Because when I blink 11 times like this (oh yes, he showed us) my eyes get kinda blurry and I can't see right." Oh my! I had to turn away! I'm thinking he shouldn't blink so much at one time and he'd be ok!!

And my sweet story of the day. 5th grade is having their graduation program so I popped in for a minute. I love listening to them sing. They sang "Keep the Dream Alive" and had 3 soloists. One girl was doing an awesome job. Really into it with soul and everything when the song got to her and she started crying. She kept right on singing though. She did great and got a standing ovation.

How sweet, most kids that age don't really think about words of a song. Heck, I don't normally think about the words to a song.

11 times? Not 10 or 12, but 11? LOL
