Child's Play

 I work as a substitute instructional assistant in a classroom of 32 children.  It's been a gratifying experience, and this week, we were treated to a field trip the the Gardens of the World nearby in Thousand pictures of that, but we had a great time!!!  But the next day, we had our Christmas Park party where we had food provided by generous parents, and the kids could relax and have fun with each other...look at the pals above!!
 And, of course, these stylish young ladies!!  We had foods from a variety of cultures to taste.
 And we also had a kids' favorite...PIZZA!
 Quite a few kiddos tried out the new "snake" equipment in the playground.  This went up and down like a serpent with our gleeful passengers laughing and occasionally falling off!!
 Then on to the chopstick contest!!  The one who picked up the most dried beans in the time allotted would win a very nice pair of chopsticks!!!
 It's not as easy as it looks!!!!
 Takes a bit of concentration!!!
 And a little tricky holding those sticks!!!
 But it can be done!!!
And the winner is...what a happy boy with an even happier teacher looking on!!!
