Surviving the summer with help from Harold and his Preschool Friends

Jesus Loves Me … and We Love Each Other!
Can you believe it? School’s almost over again. Every year I feel the same way. How can time go so fast???
Of course it doesn’t go fast for the preschoolers. They live in the moment (as we all should, at least more than we do).
Today one of my little ones underscored the reason I love teaching in a Catholic school … and miss it so much over the summer! She looked deep in thought on the playground.
My teacher associate, Mrs. Sierra, asked her what she was thinking about. She said “Jesus’ love for me.”
That just made my day. It’s why I LOVE teaching in a Catholic school. Helping the kids feel Jesus’ love, and helping them understand what Jesus wants them to do – love and serve each other – is what it’s all about!!! 🙂

It’s wonderful to share a piece of my life that way! Continue Reading

Parents and my Sisters have asked how I get 20 preschoolers to sleep. Well, we have a routine. Continue Reading
