As the preschoolers were sitting with me the other day, they were recalling the obstacle course the older kids had made last summer.
One of them asked, “Miss Becky, can we do that tomorrow?”
Suddenly, three Crabbies were standing right there in front of me!
“You still have to help the kids sign all those autograph dogs. You can’t set up an obstacle course too! Tell them there is no time. There’s just no way. They’ll have to wait for another day.”
While the Crabbies were talking to me, I could hear another child ask, “Can we, Miss Becky? Can we do an obstacle course tomorrow?”
This time I answered, “It would be fun, but I don’t think we can. We have to sign all the dogs tomorrow, and I have to manage that. I won’t have time to set up an obstacle course and get lunch ready too.”
One by one, the kids showed me they are CrabbieMasters:
“Miss Becky, we can’t let Can’t-Do win.”
“Half of us can sign the dogs while the other half works on the obstacle course. Then we can switch.”
“If we all pitch in, Hurry-Up won’t have a chance!”
“We can help you, Miss Becky!”
As I said, “Okay. Let’s give it a try,” I watched the three Crabbies out of the corner of my eye. I watched them quickly slump away.
“Whew!” I thought. “They almost had me today!”
How did it all work out, you ask?
Well… see for yourself!
Another fun way to keep the Crabbies at bay!
