Good morning children,
I’m so glad to see you. How are you? (children respond)
Have you ever attempted to do an impossible thing? Has someone ever asked you to do something you could never do — like holding your breath for an hour? (children respond) Can anybody here this morning walk on a wall? Or teach a goldfish to play a clarinet? Is it possible to be in two places at once — like being here in this place and in Hawaii at the same time? (children respond) Not possible is it? Is it possible to ride two bicycles at once? Who can ride one at a time? (children respond) But not two.
