School Is In Session

 I know that so many people are down on public school these days. It's very common to hear many parents talk about how our public schools are going to hell in a handbasket. But personally I think that public schools are working very hard for our kids. And if you ever get to talk to these heros that we call teachers you will know that they do their very best for our kids. They go above and beyond and many go way more than above and beyond. This is our first year in public school but I am just amazed by what a great year Kate has had. She LOVES her teacher. Case in point: There was a snow day this year  where the kids had to be picked up early from school. I asked Kate, "When Ms. H said you were going home early  did you shout yipppeee???" She said, "No I was sad because I had to leave Ms. H." On the first Monday on Christmas break Kate woke up and the first thing she said? "I miss Ms. H" and who can forget the time that we drove home from school with Kate shouting in the car, "I love you Ms. H! Have a great week end! See you on Monday!" Did I mention that Ms. H was nowhere in sight??:) It is such a comfort as a Mom to know that your kid (especially your first kindergartner not only loves school, but absolutely loves her teacher.) So while Kate told me the other that when she grows up she wants to be a mouse. (And can I make her a little house to protect her so that noone steps on her?) I think she really wants to be a teacher. :) Just look at this little scene I walked in on the other day.

I randomly found your blog this evening. I am a teacher and wanted to say, thank you for your post. I hope your daughter will always have wonderful teachers like Mrs. H.

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
