Girl Scout Presentation and Skill Overestimation

I had the opportunity to talk to a Girl Scout group today.  I took Blue with me, so I can tell them about service dogs, dog training, and I wanted to explain the differences between how humans and dogs process smells.

I believe the girls are in Kindergraden and 1st grade, so they are really young.  I thought I had it under control, but I am afraid I overestimated my ability to communicate with such a young crowd.

At times, the poor kids looked a bit confused.  However, I think they enjoyed the presentation or at least they enjoyed watching Blue.  I hope they learned something from it and if so I will call it a success.

Now that I sit here thinking about it and how I struggled, I have a greater respect for the adults that volunteer to work with young children.
