It seems like I’m posting this again. Facebook ate my blog…we’re so busy…blah, blah blah.
Since spring break we’ve managed SOLs, I completed my training, orientation in doc process to be a substitute teacher, Bria decided to join a travel soccer team AND the swim team, we’ve been blessed with multiple sets of visitors, we entered the mad dash of concerts, programs, ceremonies and banquets that is the end of school and I’m basically currently working full time but with no notice. Yikes!
And so as I sit here on my supposed to be half hour that might be 20 minute lunch break, I want to tell you something. After being in this school as a substitute in a special needs classroom… One God wants me to know I need more patience. 2… I’m so disappointed with the world as whole. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen kids do miraculous things for these kids that can be so frustrating to be around. More often than not I’ve see kids be downright mean. So far, the worst are the girls. I nearly teared up in a sixth grade math class yesterday thinking in four short years Jack would have to endure that.
So a couple of weeks ago I was nervous for Bria who has to try out for soccer with girls that are basically a year older and a grade ahead. Today I realized I need to worry about Jack every single day. I pray that he’s good at school but I should’ve been praying for his heart to be protected.
That’s all… I just wanted to get it off my chest before my recess duty. Please teach your kids to be kind, Always.
