Hands waved wildly in the air, the group burst into a fit of giggles and Kate was right in the middle of the madness. Wonderful, as she occasionally has difficulty connecting with her classmates, the antics of first graders being somewhat frivolous to my child who prefers Betsy Ross to Fancy Nancy. Her teacher was encouraged as Kate, her frequent lunch partner, sat with a group of girls, playing a rousing game of Who Likes?.
"Who likes pizza?", hands everywhere!
"Who likes hot dogs?", another fit of hand waving!
"Who likes macaroni and cheese?", it was becoming contagious!
"Who likes arugula?", one lone hand, plenty of silence.
Her teacher shook her head, so close, so very close.
