Its Sunday night and my daughter just dumped out the box of Jenga blocks. I used them for a get to know you activity with my students a year ago and so half of them have questions. I didn't have any ideas for my Monday blog post so I decided to pick a random block to answer. But that block had a stupid question so I picked another one.
What is your first memory of being really excited?
I'll admit, at first I thought "I don't remember!" But I realized that if I didn't remember, it wasn't a memory (deep, right?). So my first memory of being excited? Planning a trip to Disneyland when I was probably 11. I remember packing my purse like a month in advance with my yummy smelling lotion and my bubblegum chapstick.
Now think a little harder I also remember being very excited to find the gingerbread man in Kindergarten. The kids I nanny just did that activity last month. So fun to know the tradition lives on! (At totally different schools in a totally different state then where I grew up)
