The days go by.
We work on spelling, science,
history and more.
At times we wonder if anything we
do means more to our students than
another day to check off their logs.
However, there comes a day when it
all comes together.
This has been a year of many such days
in our lives.
As the children get older and face new
experiences we are able to watch them
put their years of learning to use.
Sometimes it is how they relate to things
at a job or volunteer opportunity.
Sometimes it is just an outpouring of words
in the form of a poem.
Not an assignment.
Just an expression of intense emotion.
There's something about this storm,
that I can not ignore.
This is not the norm,
this is something more.
There's electric in the sky,
there's water on the ground.
There's thunder in the air,
it's beauty all around.
It's like a song
that's playing in my head.
It's like a strong command
that God has clearly said.
What an incredible sight.
It is still the daytime,
but yet it's dark like night.
It is a symphony
it is truly wonder
So, on those days when you feel
like nothing is sticking.
When you are so very discouraged at the
progress of your little writers...
If one day you feel inadequate...
YOU are making a difference.
YOU are teaching the future.
The future looks good,
if we judge it by the fruits of your labor!
