It was an interesting day.
Anyway, I was coloring just like the rest of them, while also trying to keep them focused (because we obviously didn't have any other activity ideas) and to keep all the crayons on the table. My favorite little boy was sitting next to me, and at one point he leaned over and looked at my paper.
"Hey, that's looking so good in the lines!"
It made my day. It's been a long time (like, a REALLY long time) since I've been complimented on my ability to color in the lines, but it never loses its thrill, you know?
