"I Got New Socks!"
Getting new things is always exciting! I love getting new things, personally, I love getting new jewelry. :-) Well, kids are the same way. They like to get new things, too. Well, today one of my little boys came to me and said, "Miss Pregony, did you notice any thing new about me?" Well, I looked at him. I looked at his mouth first. I checked to see if he had lost any teeth. That is a big thing to happen in first grade. I then looked at his clothes. I didn't notice anything new. I said, "No." He then bent down. I was thinking he must have gotten new shoes, but I didn't notice them being new. He pulled at his socks. He said, "I got new socks!" He had the biggest grin on his face. It was so cute! He was so excited about his new pair of socks. Apparently, I was supposed to notice them. Oops! Sorry! I thought it was priceless on how excited he was to share with me about his socks, so I wanted to share with you on what came "Out of the Mouth of Babes."
I am a born again Christian. That is the most important thing to know about me. Being a Christian is the greatest honor and privilege in a person's life (my life!). Being a Christian, I sought and followed God's will for my life. He gave me a love for children and led me to be a teacher. I'm not just a teacher, but I have the awesome and amazing privilege to be a Christian school teacher. I teach at the Christian school associated with my church in Richmond, Virginia. I am a first grade teacher, and I love it! I love working with and teaching "my children." But, I love most serving the Lord and teaching these kids that God has given me more about Him. What a blessing! Now, being a Christian isn't always easy. It is a constant learning experience. On my blogs, I share with you some of the great things I get to experience from working with children--- "Out of the Mouth of Babes." I am also showing how I am Learning to Lean on God's Arms. That is a personal "diary" of sorts of things the Lord is teaching me, as His child.
