Teachable Moments...

Whatever you write on the heart of a child,
No water can wash away,
The sand may be sifted when
Billows are wild,
And the efforts of time may decay.
Some stories may perish,
Some songs be forgot,
But this graven record-
Time changes not.
Whatever you write on the heart of a child,
A story of gladness or care
That Heaven has blessed
or earth hat defiled,
Will linger unchangeably there.

 A day without laughter is a day wasted...

 The average child laughs about 400 times per day, the average adult laughs 15 times per day.

 Sometimes we are so busy adding up our troubles, that we forget to count our blessings.

 A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly.  But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around.
 You can't use up creativity, the more you use, the more you have.

Summer fun....

This summer has definitely been filled to the brim with work, fun, family, and friends.  Here is a small recap of everything that has happened with pictures.

And although there was so much more that happened over the summer...that will have to wait for another time...because now it is back to decorated and organizing the classroom and getting ready for school to start.
