Do you have seagulls at your school? Enough of them hang around our school that one might think we were seaside...don't we wish? While we do not have a lovely ocean view, we are near enough to inlets off of the Puget Sound and to the Hood Canal that numerous seagulls find it worth the short flight to hang around the playground in hopes of nabbing dropped crackers. Today however, one particularly pesky seagull managed to nab an entire sack lunch. Our students have recess before lunch and so take their lunches outside with them (placing them in bins until the whistle blows). The gutsy gull picked up a full paper sack out of the lunch bin and took it up to the roof. My little kindergarten buddy could only stand there and watch as his lunch flew away. Poor guy had to settle for a bean burrito hot lunch. When I asked him what had happened to his lunch later, his response was a simple..."a bird stoled it."
I had to laugh (but I really hope it doesn't happen again). The biggest laugh this week was on me though. While I admit that I am not exactly young...coming up on celebrating the second anniversary of my 39th birthday...I'm not exactly old either. Imagine my chagrin at receiving a Senior Living magazine in the mail yesterday...yes, sadly
More later...keep smiling!
