The Wild West

Back to school for another year. I've chosen to teach the younger children. Don't get me wrong, I have loved teaching the older ones but a change is as good as a rest!
I had forgotten how open the younger ones are. If parents knew what their children tell their teacher, they wouldn't let them out the door until they were at least 10.

First day: We were doing a lesson on Relatives, and had talked about all the easy ones like mother, father, son, daughter etc.  We got onto the harder ones like Mother-in-law, father-in-law etc.
"Miss, I know we're talking about in-laws but I've heard of outlaws. Are they the same?
"Not exactly."Chuckle. "An outlaw is someone who breaks the law."
Hand shot up.
"Oh Miss! My uncle speeds down the road on his quad and he doesn't even have a licence. Is he an in-law or an outlaw?"
"Erm. A bit of both. Now class, let's not mention any more relatives that have broken the law!"

I can tell it's going to be an enjoyable year!
