It’s – obviously – been a bit difficult for me to step back into the blog since my vacation.
Sometimes I just get caught up in the moment and get forgetful. I’m sure you understand.
In the past week:
- Although I didn’t write any blogs, I did fill up quite a few journal pages [which is definitely a good thing, as I notice that when my writing stops flowing, my life stops functioning].
- I started reading “Good Grief” for my first ever book club meeting this month! [Is it really weird that I’m most excited about the prospect of having a potluck and making goodies for random strangers?]
- We were gifted a ridiculous amount of ginormous avocados from my Grandma’s tree [my favorite!]…
and ate more than our fair share for this season.
- Addi – who is growing up way too fast! – and I explored a brand new Pre-K playground in Kula!
- I had way too much fun at ‘Iao Valley with four of my favorite boys in the entire world!
[plus Ben + Zak!]
- Ben + I shared some great wholesome green plate dinners.
- And I got to help Ben clean + set up his first classroom as a teacher!
[excuse the blurry smart phone photo]
That’s right! Today Mr. Ben goes from assistant teacher to TEACHER!
“Teaching is the profession that makes all others possible.”
The world of Special Education is incredibly broad, and the subject is not easy to teach, nor understand. It’s people like Ben, who are extraordinarily patient, caring, and giving, who make all the difference for not only the students themselves, but for their families.
To the man who continues to amaze, inspire, and motivate me: I could not possibly be any prouder of you than I am at this very moment.
Happy first day of school, Mr. Ben!
Was there a teacher who made a profound difference in your life?
For me it was Mrs. Weeks, my AP Psych teacher, who believed in my vision and walked me through the college application process line by line before school every morning because no one in my family had ever even looked at a college app before.
