Special Ed. Kids

Yesterday, I was hanging out with the special ed. kids, singing the how are you song. I like the how are you song because everyone has to shake hands and I think this is a good culture lesson for the kids about, you know, whatever. Anyway, the special ed. kids are particularly difficult to involve in the song as any sort of mixing and choosing seems to be hard for them. Except for this one kid yesterday who couldn't wait to shake my hand. I thought it was great until I noticed one of the teachers was having to scold him just about every other minute for sticking his hand in his butt. I noticed this right as we went into our second time singing the song and he bee-lined it right for me again. So, the moral of the story is: wash your hands. Especially given all the influenza and, uh, butt-related diseases.
