“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn't been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.” ~ Pablo Casais

Thank you Paree for the gorgeous paper texture


One of the best things I ever learned about myself is that, in the Meyers Brigg Personality testing, I am an ENFP. I won't go into a long, drawn out description, but I will encourage you to take the test and learn about it, and yourself.

President Obama is the first ever ENFP President of the US

One version of the test:


An interesting fact, many teachers, especially those who teach young children, have an S and J in their personality type. Apparently, there are no good or bad types. However, my type and that type, perceive the world in much different ways, and have much different approaches to learning and teaching. I was told, "if you ever teach, aim for third grade and higher."


For teacher appreciation week, I made this homemade flower vase... photo of the kids, glued to an applesauce jar, and added flowers from my garden. It's been an interesting year to watch my child go from sweet little kid, coloring pictures in kindergarten, to reading, writing and arithmetic... and homework Monday - Thursday. I guess we all have to grow up eventually, but noone ever said it's easy.
