Linda and all you great people!
Thanks for your kind words. You were right. The children shrugged it off and
were eager to "do more art." Some of the boys thought it was cool that the
balloons exploded! They came up with ideas on what to do with the remains.
All the kids said they would do it again at home with there parents, or maybe
show their little brother or sister how to do it. That made me smile. They
all remembered the steps, and we talked about how to avoid another "Blow UP."

All in all, I learned a great deal from the resilience of a child. I don't
know if I would have been so forgiving. Sometimes you just want to hug them
till they burst!

Thanks again to everyone who gave suggestions and a shoulder to weep on. I
love this list!
