Celebrate | This & That




The response...

We have been reading Mo Willem's pigeon books. Today when I was sending some kids back to their seats (again), one of them replied "I have dreams you know!"  We giggled!

The rides...

Our blue car broke down over the Christmas break, but  I am still getting to school and back home again. Jim, Elizabeth, Mom & Dad, Natalie...Thank you.

Finding joy in the little and big moments of life!

  1. Short and sweet. No more needed. I can hear the giggle and feel the warmth of appreciation. Visually your words seem like little seeds on bright white snow waiting for birds to arrive.

  2. I agree with Terje! I love this post...so few words which paint a panoramic vista of joy! I, too, love the Mo Willems books and I love the moment when a student jokes using something from the text. Awesome! Thank you for sharing.

  3. So few words and yet so much gratitude! One of my students told me this week that Mo Willems knows that kids like! I smiled. He knows what teachers like too!

  4. Love the fact you're appreciating those moments that we often miss. Happy you're receiving such laughter at school-that dreamer-such fun to hear! And transportation is a worry and a blessing when someone steps in to help. I'm happy for you! Have a great weekend!

    1. They are a fun bunch!

      Thank you for understanding, Linda. Overwhelming at times without my own wheels but I am so thankful for family and friends.

  5. I love the simplicity of your writing because so few words say so much. I think this "format" for a lack of a better word, would serve many well come time for the March Challenge!

  6. The rides...that one said lot to me, Loralee - there's a sweetness there, and a appreciation for school. Even without knowing the backstory of the family, i can tell that school means a lot to them. Amen!

  9. This is the first time I've visited your blog and I love the simplicity of your language. It's very powerful and you say so much in few words. I'm especially glad to read how others are helping you get to school. It's amazing how our needs find a way to be filled. Have a wonderful week.
