Weekly Gratitude...


Changing Teachers. My Weekly Gratitude for this week is one I've been praying about for months... Rainee hasn't like school at all for the first several months... UNTIL... she had a substitute for the last 8 weeks... and in those 8 short weeks, she been loving school.... something I want for her... especially since it's Kindergarten! In the last 8 weeks she was so excited to get up in the morning... to go to school... even on the weekends, she would ask when she was going back... can see what the problem is???...

Anyway... I was having a hard time knowing what to do... keep her in a class she's unhappy in or move her and hope it wouldn't traumatize her. But now, with the wonderful sub gone... Rainee has cried every morning this last week... not wanting to go to school... and we're back to her hating school. Which has been breaking my heart. So, when I found out 2 openings became available in the afternoon Kindergarten class... I decided to make a change for her... so she would be excited about school again.

I made a call to the principle... not knowing what would happen... still praying... and at 7:30am Friday morning, I got the call... she will be moving to the afternoon Kindergarten class - - with a teacher I know will show Rainee that school is fun... and I know she be getting what she needs.

Sooooooo today, I'm grateful it all worked out... that there were openings for a change... that Rainee is already excited about going to school on Tuesday... I'm grateful, relieved and overwhelmed with joy that it all worked out... because the most important thing is Rainee... being happy every{day}... even at school!!!

What are you grateful for today?

Before I forget... I have a P.S. To The Coffee Cake Recipe... when I talked to my aunt she told me I'd forgot to add one thing... butter over the top... so if you've made the recipe... or if you're still thinking about it... I've changed it and it is now correct... and again... this Coffee Cake is really yummy!!!

It really does make a difference what teacher our kids have. I know my KT has had some that have been great and some not so good. They just don;t want to be there and it trickles to the kids big time! I am so glad you were able to get it switched.

I had the best kindergarten teacher. His name was Mr. France. I am 33 and I still remember things about my class....Teachers need to realize, at that age they are planting a seed for the rest of the years we have to go to school. They are setting the stage. It can be fun and enjoyable. I am so happy she was able to go to a new class.

I truely believe that teachers can make all the difference. Part of my son's kindergarten year he started getting in trouble. At first he would get in trouble at home as well because it was so out of character for him. Then I finally found out he was getting his card turn for things like jumping into his space on the rug or laughing when some other boy passed gas. My husband still laughs at that how could my 5 year old not. He's in second now and for the last two years never had a bad card come home. Glad you were able to do what was best for Rainee.

That's so sad that she was having a bad time for that long. I'm glad she loved her sub & really glad that you were able to get her into another class. Everything worked out for the best, it seems!

Hugs... :-)
