Un momento while I go check...............................................................................................
Yeppers! I do!
It is gorgeous outside. The temperature is perfect. Dogwoods, azaleas, tulip trees, bluebonnets, and tons of other Spring flowers are blooming. Yes, we just had Spring Break but I am ready for one more! Sitting outside by my sister's pool with a book is the prescription.
The last time I had an actual sick day was 9 years ago. Rub your eyes but you read that correctly! If getting ready for a sub wasn't such a pain, I might be tempted. But then I think of all I still need to teach and I start to panic, stress, and worry! HOLY MOLY! HOLY MOLY!!!!
Then, I stopped myself today. I thought of how God uses the sparrow and the eagle in Bible.
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Because of grace, I can come before God and ask His forgiveness and through His love He finds beauty in me.
I think of my kiddos and how I can see all of the things they still need to learn and how much further some of them still need to go. Or I can look at them and see how far they have come. I can see the strength and resilience that many of them have. I can remember to have a Heart of Patience. I need to remind myself daily that I must touch their heart first and love them with all of my heart even when they may not deserve it or be acting in a manner where we want to freely give it.
I thought I would share this poem. This just reminds me that God is our teacher who loved us first.
Now to some *freebies*! =)
My kiddos love dice games and went nuts over Race to the Rainbow. So, here is an Easter dice game-Hop to the Top!
This is a measurement activity using the small plastic Easter eggs and the big, jumbo ones.
I hope your kiddos have fun with these *freebies*! =)
I would love for you to leave me a heart note if you grab them or the poem.
Thank you for touching my heart each day and blessing me in some many ways. =)
