I spent the day at Casey Elementary helping to hang up artwork, reading and discussing two books about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a class of third graders, and observing a third grade drama class. Much of my life is spent around children at work, at church, at school, with friends, and of course at home with my own two bundles of joy. While sometimes frustrating and exhausting, being around children-- working with them, teaching them, learning from them, watching them think, creating with them-- gives me such joy and energy. I crave their exuberance.

Happy Friday, everyone. Enjoy the long weekend. Celebrate.

Exuberance is beauty. William Blake

Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance. Anne Sexton

What a perfect title for the photograph! I loved your description of the day at Casey. We had fun teaching about MLK today, too, and preparing the children for all of next Tuesday's activities. Enjoy your long weekend!
