Beautiful!! Yes, you are cute George :)

Uma por Dia said...

Why 101? like the dalmatas?

George Townboy said...

Uma Por Dia: That sounds cool! I wish I had thought of that. But 101 is like the basic, or introductory, course in college - like English 101, or Algebra 101. At least it was 100 years ago when I went to college, lol!

Carletta said...

Ahhh! So cute!
These little guys look like they have it altogether - way past 101!

I know a little about teachers :)
...and Mama appears to be an excellent teacher!

Carletta said...

I forgot - I loved the quote - excellent values there!

Small City Scenes said...

Carletta: Thank you!! I was imagining your classroom as I developed the lesson plan!

MB: They are so cute!! I'm hoping the hawk stays away.

Daniel: Thank you Daniel!! I was running around after them, getting tired as I know Mama Duck must also!

Julie: Thank you!!

Janice Thomson said...

I loved this post George - loved everything about it from the quote to the photos themselves. Excellent.

quintarantino said...

Loved this post very much and that quote is very nice.
People should act like that!

Uma por Dia said...

Here do not use that terminology. Thanks for explanation.

Tell the little fellow that he is not the one that looks different because he is his mothers face.

George Townboy said...

Janice: Thank you so much!! I appreciate you!

Quintarantino: I have an idea that you are the epitome of the words written in the quote! Thank you!

Uma Por Dia: You are welcome. I have to keep in mind the differences in our cultures and try to be more explanatory in the future.

I'll look for the little guy tomorrow and reassure him that he is not the ugly duckling! LOL

moralist MAry said...

difference is not synonymous of ugly, I think it is bad to forward thsat idea to kids, at least this is my ideology: we must accepted difference and try not to make judgements of value.

Champ Townboy said...

Thank you, Mary, you are absolutely correct. I like your ideology.

I forgot to add: However we must not give up of the critical sense and opinion :)

Champ Townboy said...

Thank you, sweet Maria with lapses, I'm so happy you remembered.
