My Favorite School-Yard Goodbye

This morning, my Very Philosophical 5th Grade Friend asks me what I blogged about today. This question happens regularly at 8:15 AM.

Every morning, I tell him I haven't blogged because nothing's happened yet.

He still asks. He still wonders if something amazing happened to have happened in the time I woke up and walked to his house down the street.

Not yet. Nothing yet.

As we approach the school and get ready for our good-byes, he says, "Well, take it all in, and see what you find."

Yes! This is a great good-bye. That's what I'll do. I will take it all in and see what I can find. 

I hope he's doing that, too.

I love this particular parting to students: Take it all in! See what you find!
