So last week was a tough one in kindergarten! The excitement of being back to school (yes, they were excited to be be at school!) had worn off and we were back to business as usual. The kids were stir crazy from no outdoor recess-- no outdoor anything thanks to the rain-- and kids were moving their behavior clips faster than you could blink. I took the opportunity to share with them something I heard about on the radio years ago (and if you hear about it on the radio, it's definitely true, right? AND it has been confirmed by the internet! DOUBLY true! lol.). I told them about Smile Therapy. Yep-- Smile Therapy-- the very act of smiling itself makes you feel better. :) So, sometimes, on the way to school, sitting alone in my car, I will just randomly smile. For no good reason other than to just feel better. Try it! It really works. I'm not kidding-- look it up... it's true-- it's on the internet. lol.
And speaking of smiles, this paper from Close to My Heart, called Flirty, really makes me smile. I love the bright colors. The layout is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch.
Here's the sketch:
Thanks for taking a look! Don't forget to take a little time-- or a lot of time-- to smile today!
