2013 ... here we go!

We have hit the ground running ... 4 weeks into the new school year and things are humming along. The start of a new school year is always fun ... and just a little tiring too! The little tykes are so full of energy. After such a lovely long break for summer, it takes a bit of getting use to the early starts in the morning and being on the go again ... but we are getting there :) We are off to a flying start and looking forward to a very fun year.

Grade One certainly keeps you on your toes, such fun little people with a unique view on the world and so eager to impress with all their worldly wisdom. This was made apparent during a devotion on Friday. I read the story of 'Noah and the ark' to a class of wide eyed students. I explained that it was a story from long long ago. After reading the story a little hand shot up in the air and an excited voice proudly announced that his Grandad was on that boat. I had to stifle a giggle. It is moments like this that remind me why I made a career out of teaching ... because amongst the busyness of the day and the learning of sounds, counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s AND everything else that goes into a jam packed learning schedule, it is the unexpected surprises of innocence that keeps me smiling. Every day, I get to shape souls, mould hearts, stretch minds and open up a whole world of possibilities to curious little people. Such limitless potential continually beckons me forward. I really do have the best job in the world.

Grade One love on Valentines Day ... so blessed!
