We're studying the Renaissance in Timeline Travel. Today, my students pretended to be Leonardo DaVinci painting the Mona Lisa. When children are creative, they grow!
God has surrounded me with wonderful students who are studious, creative, and compassionate. This precious boy below, TL, sold cookies in the break room to support our adoption. He came into class and handed me a ziploc bag full of crumpled bills and change. TL is always wearing a smile, and he is always helping others.
Other families also continually bless my life. Below are JR and HR! Their family gave me the beautiful "Overcomer - I will not leave you as orphans" necklace today. I nearly cried. It's beautiful! JR and HR's mother, Amanda, is one of the most loving people I know. This entire family has been extremely supportive and encouraging throughout this entire adoption. How thankful I am for them!
Of course, one of my favorite things about Thursday is ending my day surrounded by my boys! (Yes, Mason is now taller than me! Oh my!) We work together to clean the room, pack supplies, and load the van to head home. Today we made a special pit-stop on the way home for a doughnut! How blessed I am!Whether my own children, or those birthed to other families. Teaching is a responsibility I take very seriously. It's an honor to be with these students each week.
A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.
