These are the faces of the future.
These kids appreciate being in school and all that people have done to help enrich their lives.
These kids are enjoying the chance to just be kids.
Today I went to the school with Capt Jeff and his friend. While they were getting the tour I could not help but wander off to see the kids. I went straight for the special ed room. The kids there are always a delight to see. They were having a great time and when I started taking pictures right away they wanted to show me books and puzzles.
Next I headed for the newly built cafeteria. Before that was finished the kids ate in classrooms. The kids were enjoying lunch but that did not stop them from wanting to pose and look at pictures. They love the cameras so much and seeing themselves. Photographing my way out the door I went to catch up with the group for the next part of the tour.
After our walk through San Mateo we were talking by the school and I was ambushed by happy kids, playing and wanting hugs. They are all just so cute.
