I know you all remember that adorable kindergarten teacher who works in the room next to mine, Ms. Perky. (I can see you nodding your heads. But if you're new here, you can meet her here and here.)
Yesterday we were immersed in amazing, incredible 100 day centers throughout the morning. Ms. Perky was working with a group of children who were decorating their special 100 day sunglasses.
According to Ms. Perky, "I handed them sequins, feathers and gems to totally be-dazzle their glasses. I told them to knock my socks off! But Alyn kept his simple. I offered him more and more outrageous feathers and encouraged him to go crazy."
"Nah," he said as he declined. "I'm not a fancy man. I just like to get dirty."
It's hard to argue with a man who knows who he is.
