Are You Still With Me?

I must admit, the few posts I've managed to squeak out lately haven't been very profound or amusing. But, since I use this blog as a virtual journal/scrapbook of sorts for future generations to know how completely whacked their great, great-grandmammy was, I must ask for your patience as I chronicle some of life's moments in the oH mY wORD family.

We made it to the last day of school despite all the crazy PTO/school principle trauma that is just way too detailed to get into. Let's just say that the last day of school couldn't come fast enough. And, I'm praying. Praying that by the time August rolls around we can unite for the common good!

Below are #2 and #3 with their teachers from this last year. These women were answers to prayer and I am so glad we went "public"! #2 even received a special Citizenship Award (I'd post pictures, but I'm too tired to go into Photo Shop to remove all traces of our school's name on the podium). One student from each class is chosen and I was so happy when I found out it was #2! She has such a servant's heart and a good attitude (unless she is tired and then you better look out....she gets that from her dad....LOL). In fact, today was our first day of our summer enrichment program at school and during the Olympic Sports Camp she fell while running the dash. She got up and kept on running, which earned her a gold medal for the day! A teacher and a parent in charge of the group used her as an example of falling and getting back up again in life with a good attitude. She had shown good sportsmanship and cheered for everyone all morning, whether they were on her team or not. Ok...I'm done bragging. There is no shame in it, because I'll bet when I manage to get a few things right God is bragging about me to the angels!

Is it just me or is there a slight resemblance between student and teacher? You know how they say people start to look like their dogs after awhile? Could the same be true with teachers??

Overall, it was a very good year. My kids weren't the only ones who learned a lot. I learned that people are hungry for a real relationship with a real God. I'm praying for increased courage and wisdom so I can help them go after it.

Yep, I'm still here. And yes, they do look like their teachers.

As a public school teacher I love hearing about christian kids in public school with Godly character who strive to make a difference. :)
