Every day, I walk past the Journeys School pre-kindergarten play-yard and wave hello to the kids. They wave enthusiastically and yell "Hi Shellie!" and I continue on with my regular day, but with a fresh smile on my face. I've been selfishly collecting their good energy, but today I want to share the joy with you. These kids are kind, curious, collaborative AND they can still count their age on one hand!

Last Thursday, I had the privilege of interviewing the pre-k class on one of their #1 passions: Dinosaurs! We sat down in the play-yard, and when I initiated the dinosaur interview, I was immediately asked if I was a paleontologist. Readers, I'm sorry to disappoint - I'm not a paleontologist, but I'm one step closer because of this interview. I hope you learn as much as I did.

Q: Where do dinosaurs live?

A: In Jurassic Park!

It should come as no surprise that the group unanimously decided that the next interview will cover both wild and domestic cats. Stay tuned for that interview, but until then, be sure to share the valuable dinosaur facts you've learned from this blog post!
