E2-A - The Monsters!

These kids may be cute little second-graders, but they are also my toughest class. They are a high-energy bunch that loves to be loud. I love the little monsters, but they sure make me work!

"Normal" group shot. Facing the camera, left to right are: Jinny, John, Edward, Megan, Anna, and Linda. The kids behind them are Ryan, Brian, and Sam. Tim and Ricky were absent that day. Megan and Edward are twins.
This crazy group shot is actually a more accurate idea of what these kids are like!
Anna, Linda, and Jinny.
Megan, the shy and quiet one.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
