It might be different in other parts of the country, but here in the Madison, Wisconsin area, the first day of school is tomorrow, September 3. This means we all have to be on the lookout for children going to and from school each day.
Signs that remind us to be careful typically say, “Watch out for children,” or “Watch for children.” A few years ago, on one of our autumn photography trips to Waupaca County, Wisconsin, Ruth and I saw an interesting version of this type of road sign. It said, “Watch Children.”
It made me stop and think about all the wonderful things we can learn or be reminded of if we just sit and observe the interaction of children. For example, live in the moment, giggle whenever possible, use your imagination, be curious about everything, and have fun.
