In February, a random person stopped by the school and said he wanted to make our school the recipient of the proceeds of a local 5K run. As long as I was not expected to run 5K, SURE why not!?
In addition to the blessing of financial proceeds, he is recruiting volunteers to PAINT and help with our outdoor upkeep. WOW! Seriously, the SOUND of 4 power washers running for 2 days was unbearable (that is why they make noise-cancelling ear plugs – which my little student Diego thinks are super cool!)
we are feeling very BLUE as the painting continues
In this case feeling BLUE is a good thing…. it’s our color!
While all of that is happening OUTSIDE we are still learning INSIDE. The day I broke out the origami paper and started cutting it into fraction lessons was joyful for me and actually made one student cry. Not because I was destroying origami paper but because he really wanted to do anything but think about parts of a whole. I mean, who knew that turning that page in the math book would cause deep grief?
We are taking advantage of nice weather to sit outside when possible – reading class, art class, and we hung up some rings to begin to develop some gym class moments. Maybe CSCD will see a gymnast arise from the carport!
Thank you my praying friends for your prayers, your letters, your emails of encouragement. May you too have a lovely BLUE SKY and know the joy of God’s great blessings today.
