Why I Do What I Do...

I will save my embarrassing story for later. I have a lot to do and such little time to do it. Tomorrow is the first day of school. For our oldest...fifth grade...his "senior year" in elementary school. Child 2...third grade. Oh my goodness, how did that happen? And Child 3...her first day of kindergarten. And tomorrow will be my first day yet again. I seem to have those often (like every year). The first of kindergarten is not easy. It is a lot like herding cats...

Don't get me wrong. I LOVE my job. I love my kiddos. They are so eager to learn. It is just a bit of a challenge...unless you have taught kindergarten you have NO idea. The idea of getting in a line, opening glue, listening to an adult speak...whole new world...

But there is a reason I do what I do...

This is it.

Happy first day of school, fellow Arkansans!


  1. thank you for posting this video... it is a WONDERFUL reminder of why we do what we do... i had chills and tears watching this precious child and thought of so many of our students who do need us because we are all they have.... it can be heartbreaking and rewarding all at the same time..
    Thank you for reminding me why I get up and go every day!
    Have a wonderful first day! I will be praying for you and your kiddos!

  2. Hope you have a wonderful first day!!
