claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
oh, my children are blessed with kind and amazing women as teachers. so why is the angst still so great?
i finished an hour tonight of caring for a crying micah. it came down to him saying he was afraid he was going to get in trouble. i know how well he did in the classroom last year, so i assured him he knew what to do and we weren’t afraid he would get in trouble. he said, “but i always get in trouble at home and you and daddy never believe me.”
well. humbled again. this dear child is hurting and we are on a new road now. we had a great conversation of what we can all do to make it better.
naomi is settling in deep to a calm classroom…a teacher who appreciates that. i am so grateful.
and eliza is making her list of all the things she will do when she is 4 which now includes going to first grade and fifth grade.
