The following is a guest post by Kassandra Brown of ParentCoaching.org.
“A big wind blows…”
My daughter is in the middle of a 30-person circle, holding one arm out as she turns slowly to look at all of us.
“On all of those….”
She smiles and pauses dramatically.
“Who have … boots!” she shouts triumphantly.
Chaos erupts as everyone scrambles for a new seat. Some folks are slower than others looking at each other and saying “I’m not wearing boots but I do have them,” before they, too, get up.
We’re in the midst of our community’s “Meet and Greet,” an evening event where we play icebreakers with the 13 strangers-about-to-become-friends who’ll be staying with us for the next week or two.
My daughter and I agreed to host the event and I’m delighted to see her participating so fully.
