teach them well and let them lead the way

The 5th-grader popped into my room this evening to ask a question:

"Do you think that the half-day I worked on your Mission Trip site would count towards my Community Service badge for Girl Scouts?"

"Hard to say - my Girl Scout expertise is fairly limited."

"Well, I figure I worked about... what are you listening to?"

"The Temptations."

"Ugh. I should get Community Service points for having to listen to that."

"What?!? How can you not like the Temptations?"

"I've never even heard of him."

"...Get out."
