So it was a no brain-er when the PTA put a call out for volunteers to help corral the children from the designated meeting spot to school. I wanted to make the morning special for the kids so I woke up early and headed out of the house with sidewalk chalk in hand. Along the route I wrote messages to the kids, words of encouragement and fun things to do along the way.
Walk the Tightrope.
Spin. Jump. Tap your head. Wave.
And who couldn't benefit from hearing "you are so smart" as they make their way into school.
I know the kids had fun this morning and hopefully some of them will ask their parents to be able to walk to school more often.
