There is something to be said for the sound of birds chirping, the blooming trees, the warmth of sun beating down on you. It is no longer that spring is around the corner, it is finally, Spring is here. You don't even have to hear the birds chirping, feel the warmth of the sun or see the blooming trees, just enter the Kindergarten hallways of any school and you KNOW something is different.
It is almost instant as you enter the wing that you know that something is different. The noise level is at a new decibel. It is a much higher decibel than normal. Everyone who entered today remarked about it today. The children just can't contain themselves. The chatter sounds like a zillion chipmunks running in circles screaching at the top of their lungs. I kid you not. In one day my class has morhped.
I'm hoping that tomorrow the screaching chipmunks will take it down a few notches tomorrow.
Happy Spring everyone...
