Today, we met some friends and their kids at a nature center, and since it was a whopping 50 degrees, a lot of people were there enjoying the nice weather. After our hike, we walked inside the nature center, fed the babies, and looked at the animals. My friend's little boy was really into the turtles, so we parked ourselves by the indoor pond and talked for a bit.
As we were sitting there talking, I noticed 2 kiddos from my school come around the corner. They made eye contact with me and then quickly turned the other direction. I knew they noticed me because I was watching them as they walked away. They kept turning around to see if I was still there!
I wasn't going to let them get away without saying hi, so I followed them! I asked them if they were having a good time, they shyly replied, "yes," and I told them to enjoy the rest of their day.
Kids are so funny when they see their teachers outside of school! No kids, I don't absorb into the school walls, or camp out in my classroom at night. I like to get out and enjoy things around the neighborhood just like you do, so don't be shy! Say hi! :)
