It's after lunch. It's during a transition time as we wrap up one activity to another. Which means some of us are up and moving or trying to finish up the current work quickly to start that moving. Her sweet smile approaches me and says, "Mrs. Robek - school is better than a Disney cruise." My mind starts racing and replaying what she just said. I know her family went on a Disney cruise near the beginning of summer so this is a recent comparison. She then proceeded to share how the pools weren't really that much fun. If I remember correctly, they weren't deep enough. As she shared more about the pool, I kept repeating her initial sentence. This is quite the compliment. "Mrs. Robek - school is better than a Disney cruise."
