Life’s ups and downs can be downright uplifting

Here’s a lesson in how to turn winter’s tantrums into a landscape rife with smiles.

The kids at Walnut Creek Elementary had a chance to make the most of this week’s snowfall. With a little ingenuity, you can turn a wintry flake dump into a learning experience.

It made for some good fun in PE. When the lesson of the day is sledding, what’s not to like?

The video comes to us from the Papillion-La Vista Community Schools – kindergarten kids hard at work on the day’s learning: sledding safety.

The down part is more fun than the up part and quite apart from the ups and downs of other endeavors. But that’s a whole ‘nuther lesson.
