Loving Living in the “State” of Kindergarten

I have learned that safety for me is having Kindergartners to wake up for, Kindergartners to amuse me during the work day, Kindergartners to prepare for after school, Kindergartners to recover from in the evenings, Kindergartners to dream about, Kindergartners to wake up for . . . and the tiny paycheck and good insurance benefits I get for waking, living, and breathing Kindergartners.

I miss being in Kindergarten this year but I still see the world through Kindergarten eyes….some of the older kids don’t quite see it the same way any more.

 Having to stop and unbutton too tight pants for one who needs to go potty while reading a story aloud, and then having to stop again when they need to be re-buttoned. I do love my kindergartners!!
Juli Benson McCarlson The smiles through the dirty faces, the way their eyes light up, the excitement in telling their stories, the hugs they share, the help they give others, the songs they sing with such gusto…just love it…there’s no where I’d rather be…and in reality, not too many people want our jobs/lives…how often have you heard ‘I could never do this’ and we ‘do’ everyday – thank you, Jesus!

Hey, Nancy – love your post – I went back to kindergarten 4 years ago and I’m in love with teaching again! They bring such light and joy into my life…KIT

 my first year in kindergarten one of my kiddos came in with her shoes on her wrong feet, and I told her “Megan you have your shoes on the wrong feet” and she immediately broke into heartbreaking tears. When I asked her what was wrong, she said “These are the only feet I have!”! 22 years ago, and I remember it like it was today!
Amy Cox
 hahaah that’s hilarious!! have you ever had a kid tie their shoelaces from their separate shoes together, only to find they fall on their face when they try to walk? haha kindergarten is priceless 🙂
