Children will be children...

We were no more
Than seven and eight
Doing something
We should not have
Been doing-
Children will be children
We were so excited
School paste
All we needed
Was water and flour
After making our concoction
We threw it in our sisters'
Top drawer of their chest of drawers
About a week or so-
A terrible smell
Came from that drawer
My mother found 
Our paste

Yes when I think of crafts and school, those were the things we had too, make your own glue, 8 pack Crayola crayons, brown drawing paper books, and Campfire much has changed.

I really hated it when I saw other kids eating paste. But now I realize, unlike my mom, their mothers didn't leave them properly, and they were malnourished.

Besides, that stuff never stuck very long unless you made papier-mâché.

Such fun memories (wee bit icky for Mother). When you said school paste I remember the white paste that actually tasted good! A nice waxy concoction with bits of construction paper in it from little fingers dipping in and spreading it on our paper. Thank you for the morning smiles. A nice trigger to think back to those days.

Love and Light

I played with matches one time under a pine green truck with my brother and a pile of dried leaves. Apparently we were under the gas tank!
Thank Goodness the neighbor lady seen what we were doing with our little fire....
