I have the greatest kids!!!!


I never thought they would get out of the "baby" stage....but all of a sudden...here they are....walking, talking, beautiful human beings.....

Our school is doing a whole "Live Aloha" thing this year. Teachers can nominate kids who are "Living Aloha" and kids can nominate the teachers and staff who are "Living Aloha"... I happened to catch a glimpse of a nomination form Molly (7) was working on...she was nominating me because..."she is nice and she embarrasses me when she sings"...

Today, after giving my kids a "come to mother" speech in the car on our way to school, I found a "thank you card" and candy on my desk from Rebekah(12), thanking me for all I do and wishing me a great day!

G.P.(10), the boy who would barely look at me at the first of the year, now goes out of his way to give me hugs and high fives in the hall....I guess I'm not so bad after all!

Kids are great and they get even greater as they get older and become "real" people.....

I LOVE THEM!!!

p.s.
as far as the efl piece, you really need to learn how to cut and paste on your computer, you right click, copy, past it in your url bar and click go. it's worth it, IF you want to see why ira loves the electric football so much. it kind of captures some "heart" in it. love, ya, miss ya, see ya soon...
