I simply adore the group of children in my summer school class. Sure, I have 17, and SURE, they might be the ones who might talk a bit more than others and who are a bit more distracted, but I am in HEAVEN. They are…me!
I have one particular gorgeous little girl who has long blonde hair, purple glasses and a giggle that would slay a dragon.
She can tell a story like nobody’s business, and reminds me of a little Rapunzel in the making.
We were working in our journals this morning when she looked at me and said, “Mrs. Smythe, I know how to blow your mind!”
“WHAT??” I laughed.
“You know, I’m gonna make you impressed! Ten plus ten is twenty….twenty plus twenty is firty and firty plus firty is one hundred!” Smile. Smile.
Not only did she blow my mind, she stole my heart. (And then I found this on my table after the kids left…)
Still the Best. Job. Ever. (Even in the summer....)
