Why teachers are special…

As previously mentioned, Jake’s End of the Year party was today.  He officially still has one more week of this class, but we celebrated a wonderful first year of preschool today. 

Jake started to Faith Baptist Academy when he was 13 months old. The first month of so was a little rough – for both of us.  But, as we grew more comfortable with FBA, things got much easier.  NOW, a year later, I have to say – I love it.  The teachers there are patient, kind, Christian women. They love these children deeply and they want nothing but the best for them.  Jake has had Mrs. Dodi this year and she has been such a blessing.  Now, when we pull up to school in the morning, he says “I want to see Dodi.”  Its soooo sweet!   Being a teacher is a tough job. It takes limitless energy, patience and a selfless heart.  (Much like being a mother).  I have lots of friends who are teachers, and I so appreciate what they do everyday. 

The party today was a lot of fun. The kids all got little diplomas and even enjoyed some pizza and cake.  Jake and his “girlfriend” Jolee played so hard during the party that they both crashed for naps right afterwards!  Jolee has an older brother so she plays hard and is rough…which, turns out – is a good thing.  Jake isn’t exactly light-handed! ha!

Here are some pictures of the big day. They are taken with my phone, so the quality isn’t that great. It was a WILD morning for us, and I just ran off and forgot the camera.
