for the next week, i'll be the substitute.
helping with glue, tying shoes, filling juice cups, resolving sharing problems.
all that good preschool stuff.
we should all teach preschool every now & then.
it makes you realize just how far you've come.
it allows you a day to study the letter Pp & the number 8.
it gives you a chance to make paper pepperoni pizzas & circle 8 pirate's parrots.
it means taking home the extra snack-size keebler chips deluxe.
which are incredibly delicious, but you've probably forgotten about that.
today I remembered.
nothing like a good reminder to enjoy simple things.
like store-bought cookies, brought to share with the class.
like knowing your abc's.
like the ability to read the instructions on a worksheet.
like possessing readable handwriting.
yay for us!

i work with preschoolers everyday! (after school) and you have summed it up! sharing issues, who knocked down who's blocks, stop making fun of naked barbies, you know...the usual.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
