Laughter is the best medicine. But when was the last time you really laughed? You know the belly ache kind of laugh.
Last week in our Pre-K 3 class, we learned the letter F. The children get to put on their 'I Spy' eyes and go on a hunt for the letter F in our poem. They circle all of the F's they find. Heidi and I formed an assembly line with the twenty children. You just have to picture this in your head!
- Heidi called each child by name and had them take off their socks and shoes.
- She painted the bottoms of their feet with white paint.
- We helped them to stand so we could get their footprints on a black background.
- I cleaned the paint off their feet.
- I put their shoes and socks back on their feet.
Some of them were ticklish. Little Nevin started giggling the minute Heidi began painting his feet. He couldn't help but laugh out loud.
It was so cute and ...very contagious.
We found ourselves laughing along with Nevin. Even now, when we point out his feet in this poster, he giggles.
Recently I received a short video of my niece Kristin's baby. Kenzie was laughing. I can't tell you how many times I watched this video of that precious baby laughing.

But in the midst of it all, I challenge you to find something to smile about. Laugh like you mean it. Time passes so quickly so take the time to enjoy those every day moments.
And I dare you not to laugh after watching this 30 second video?
I hope I caught you laughing. It's OK and besides that ...it's good for you.
Blessings and love,
