I am sitting in my office working on admin when I hear a joyful chorus of voices in the next room.  It’s the Explorers group, playing Trouble.  Many of us remember that game with the “pop-o-matic” bubble in the middle that is used for rolling the die.

Well, whenever anyone “pops” a 6 the entire group, teachers and children alike, breaks out into cheers!  It is such a joyful noise I have to go in and see what is happening.

No matter who rolls the six, the delight for everyone is palpable.  No sense of competition, just a general celebration of each other’s good fortune.

In the words of one of the teachers,  “We rejoice when others rejoice.”
