April Fool

While some children liked hearing Marc Brown's Arthur's April Fool or Diane Degroat's April Fool! Watch Out School!, others enjoyed fooling many folks today. They tried to diagnose cases of spring fever, a disease marked by several interesting symptoms. A whole class "froze" at a decided-upon word uttered by their teacher. They would only unfreeze at the principal's command.

How fun for them to fool someone else - and not get in trouble today!

Note: the beautiful shells in the photograph are really stunning creations from Dale Chihuly's glass bridge in Tacoma, Washington.


  1. "The first of April some do say
    Is set aside for All Fool's Day;
    But why the people call it so
    Nor I, nor they themselves do know."


    Sadly, I went through the whole day without playing a trick or being tricked upon. Perhaps next year!

    And what a beautiful photo - no foolin'!
