This is a blog written by a first grade teacher. I am sharing funny stories and insights given by my students and other children I am privileged to work with. I am sharing talk from "out of the mouth of babes."

"...I Would Cry All the Time."
During reading group one day this week, somehow we started talking about crying and losing someone through death. I wish I could remember what we were talking about exactly, but I can't. Anyway, one of my little boys said, "When I'm older, rather if I have a son or daughter, and if they die, I would cry all the time." Isn't that sweet? But, I hope he never experiences that in his life. That is such a hard thing for anyone to experience. I was just kind of amazed that a seven year old boy thought of it and said it. I wanted to share 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.
