Once we finished singing with Andy and his stand-up string bass, we went next door where our school photographer, Steven Yeager, had set up his equipment to take pictures.

Our play time was so much fun about half of the kindergartners decided not to clean up. I guess it their way of saying that they would like more time to play.
But leaving a lot of the clean up for the adults to do, and ignoring repeated requests to clean up is not a skillful way of asking to get more play time. In fact, not cleaning up has the opposite effect. It makes me want to avoid play time. We talked about this.
It will be a while—later this month—before we get play time again.
