Giddy Glee at the Everyday Miracle of Life

Positivity is infectious.

After 3 weeks of impatiently waiting, first graders jumped and squealed as baby chicks poked out of their eggs in a Victoria Classroom this morning.  The kids started to sing the chicken dance as another chick started to bore a new hole.  It was crazy nuts!  The kids were asked to settle-down with “How would you feel if a giant chicken stood over you doing the chicken dance when you were being born.”  I’m still trying to visualize that.  That made them calm down but couldn’t stop them from grinning ear to ear and cooing along with the cheeping of the newly-hatched chicks.  (In Italian chicks say “pio pio”)


These chicks, hatched and still hatching in Victoria are heading up Island to Naniamo to run free and lay eggs for the local food bank.

What a cracking idea!

    As the excitement continued with the rearing of chicks on day two of tangible existence I was reminded children are much like butterflies.

    Enjoy the rain, the sun, the clouds, the flowers.
