F is for Future

I just wanted to pop in and say I am not ignoring this blog. I am just taking a little hiatus. I am the first-time co-captain for our Relay for Life team and I have been a little busy. My plan is to post more frequently in the future. You know, before summer comes and I get a new crop of darlings.

I'll leave you with these little gems to tide you over.

We are reading about space and the moon this week. One little guy decided on his future career. You could actually see the idea form in his eyes. He lit up like a light bulb and blurted out: "When I grow up, I'm going to become an astronaut and change my name to Neil Armstrong!"

I did point out that he could do that AND keep his own name. But, I didn't have the heart to tell him that our government can't afford space travel right now...

Later in the day we learned that, believe it or not, there was ANOTHER dude on the moon with Neil.
Wanna-be said, "I gotta get a side-kick!"

They decided the other guy's name was Buzz (Aldrin) Lightyear.

The younger sibling of a child I've previously taught pipes up with, "not me...the second guy never gets to be the cool one."

Oh, the futures of 8 year-olds. It's fun to think of their potential.
