I was in a Christian bookstore yesterday and looking around while my daughter was going to the bathroom (the reason we were in the store this particular time). I came across a scrapbook for school children. I open it up, out of curiosity and on the very first page it says this:

"God created recess
To bring a spot of joy
Into our schools of learning
For every girl and boy
Other memories linger
Though some completely fade
But memories
From the playground
Are the best ever made"

It made me glad the my children's entire lives consist of one big recess.

It also got me thinking about my own school experience. The poem is right. The memories that are most vivid are the ones of recess. How sad.
