205. Proverbs

The best thing about children is their fresh perspective, unlike the stale ones we acquire later in life.  For example:

Proverbs – According to 6 year-olds

Mary taught first grade.  She had a class of twenty-five adorable 6 year-olds.  One day Mary gave each child the first half of a well known proverb and asked them to write in the remainder of the proverb.  It’s hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. While reading the results, keep in mind that these are only first graders, just 6 year-olds.

Love all, trust………………….. me.

An idle mind is………………….. the best way to relax.
