School has started, and I wanted to post a quick little blog with a photo of the kids. We tried to get a photo in the hall in front of this year’s board-of-many-hours (the northern hemisphere, made for the Flat Stanley unit; last year it was the sailboat from Time of Wonder, my opening-of-school book). Of course, the hallway’s too narrow for that – as I’ve found before – but eventually I got one with them all in, and thankfully by that take, their smiles and personalities were showing through. I think it was the grace of the Father rather than my photographic skill, and I love this photo!
The kids are a great bunch. 12 students, 5 boys, 7 girls, 2 Americans, 1 Indonesian, 1 Canadian, 8 Koreans, 2 new this year, 2 new last semester and 1 moved up from first to second last semester, at a variety of places in their English and math and other skills, and with oh so many interests and personality quirks and friends and experiences! I can’t wait to get to know them better, and to see them grow this year!
