Kick the can is similar to hide and seek, but "It" has to put a can in a place while everyone hides. Then while looking for others, someone who is hiding can kick the can. If he does, "It is still "It". If not, he is the new "It".
It's the people who touched my life. The friends that I cherish and are still in contact with so many years later, the adults who helped shape my character, the books I read, and the creative ways I found to play and amuse myself. i liked playing dress up and wrapping a towel around my waist as a pencil skirt. Then I would line up every can and bottle I could find and they would be the students in my class. The labels would be the assignments they had completed. What a laugh!...and I had so much fun.
Pavlo, i did not become a teacher though I did think about it. However, i have mentored many young people, and I consider myself a teacher of life (like Oprah). I am a Life Coach and that gives me the opportunity to be a teacher sometimes.
By brightest do you mean memories that stand out the most? It's makes a difference as some of the most vividly remembered childhood memories aren't positive.
I remember being pulled from my first string catcher's position on our baseball team and put into center field so the backup catcher could play a couple of innings to quiet his parents. It was a big game. The basis were loaded and the opposing player gets up and smacks one right at me. I'm running back, back, back and dropped the bugger when it hit my mit. It wasn't an easy play but that memory is very "bright" in my mind to this day.
