This is the journal entry I just read of a first grader:

The thing I will miss most about first grade is (this is the part he copied from the teacher) going to see ms. hill. She is nise and she is prtty.

That is a big deal for several reasons.
1. speech teachers are almost always forgotten --in the appreciation dept.
2. This child is the cutest thing in the world--he is one of three boys, two of whom have significant learning disabilities, and they all look alike, so i gues i am just glad that our appreciation of one another is igual. :)

In our county the second and third grades are housed in a different building, so I will not see this child next year.
I bet I will have his little brother, though. ;). (Although I hope not, b/c I hope he did not get the speech/LD genes--for his sake)

This year is coming to a close FAST! :)
