  5. My son, that is 3, has been going to VBS the last couple of days. He goes in happy and leaves happy. He was super excited about taking money last night for missions. He kept saying "I have money" and trying to hand it to his VBS teacher. It made me smile because he wants to be involved not only with the other kids but with the church. I love how big he is getting.

  35. I will not tell a lie, I have not had much to smile about. My mother passed away two weeks ago. There has been a lot of grief and a lot of stress. I do know that my daughter being so grown up about the whole thing warms my heart...and that is better than a smile even.

  49. While working in my classroom, a former student from my first third grade class (she'll be in 8th grade this year..yikes!) stopped by to visit me. The student actually looped up to 4th with me as well, however she moved away about halfway through the year. She is friends with the daughter of a teacher I work with, so that's why she was at my school. I love when my now "middle school" children visit me or acknowledge my existence out in public..most of them will even hug me :)
