When I walked into the classroom today, the Kindergarten teacher, who is absolutely lovely, was acknowledging a little red-head's birthday. She directed all the students to take a small card and go to their assigned seats. On one side of the card they were told to draw a picture "for the birthday boy." On the back students were to write the words, "David is 6." After all the cards were drawn and written on she collected them and put them into a special blue, birthday bag. I wish you could have seen the delight in this little 6-year old's face when he grabbed the bag full of birthday cards and walked over to his backpack to carefully stow them away. He was beside himself with pride and delight. I so love my job some days.
