Tuesday Slice of Life: Coloring
"I brought coloring books. Does anyone want to color?"
"Oh my God! Yes!" Two sixteen-year-old students, sitting in the bus seat across from me, eagerly grab my small stash of coloring books, markers, and colored pencils. They page through the two books I brought, exclaiming at the spread of designs.
"I love to color," One of them shares, "I cannot even remember the last time I colored anything."
"Me too. We should have more times to color."
Indeed, I think and smile. For now, their iPhones are put away and they are coloring and chattering.
We are en route to a school-sponsored trip to Chicago. As a chaperone, I will be in close quarters with these high school students for the next three days. Beginning our trip with something light, like coloring on the bus, is a great way to begin our adventure.
