Today, I volunteered in my kids' school for several hours. When I walked into E's classroom, his teacher was reading the kids a book. So I sat down to wait for her to finish. I was behind the kids and I could observe what was happening and was written on the board and extra large white tablet. I was pleased that E didn't even turn around. He stayed on task...even though I was right behind him. Then, as I was looking about, I started reading the large tablet where kids had listed answers. The headline was "Places I love in our community." Kids had listed various restaurants, parks, the library, althetics club. But then I spied E's answer. Church.
Ahhhh...Melt my heart! My son values and loves church.
I'm that lucky mom that took him to church each week for 7 years. I can remember the times when he wasn't super excited to go to church. I used to say "E hasn't learned to appreciate church yet" as we would walk the halls or sit somewhere (trying to be quiet). I think that today, he has an appreciation for our church family and perhaps even the values and morals he has learned...and continues to learn.
Boy, I'm soooooo blessed to be a stay at home mom. As hectic as it is. I just love the insights that I get to witness.
