For Kathy.....



I was asked to post a photo with one of my favorite teaching moments. I really thought for a while about this one...My teachng spans time and space and many interests as well. Just this week alone I was the guest speaker for two banquets. I spoke about community. I also hosted a community square dance for my school as well, hiring in a wonderful music group from Bloomington to call the dances. I also told stories to 600 children in Indianapolis. Hmmmmm....should I continue?

I got to thinking after the quest Kathy sent me one...one of my favorite teaching moments. Then I knew. Friday night and Saturday I was fortunate enough to have little Matthew and Jonah for the evening and the overnight stay. I like to consider myself as an event planner with them....filling their young lives with wonderful opportunities. We always make an agenda. This was our agenda this week end:

PLAY MUSIC WITH THE GUITAR (AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS)
READ BOOKS
PUT UP ALL THE GLOWING STARS AND CONSTELLATIONS ON THE CEILING OF THEIR ROOM
(YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW MUCH HELP THEY WERE ON THIS ONE...BUT OH, HOW LOVELY!)
PAINT
DRAW
SING
BAKE COOKIES
PLAY CARS
BUILT A FORT
TAKE A BUBBLE BATH
PEEL APPLES
PLAY CANDYLAND
TAKE PHOTOS

So, Kathy, my favorite teaching moment is right before your eyes!!
