prairie daze

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?

2008 2009

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.
