It Takes A Village

Growing up in a small town has advantages and disadvantages. Advantage: Everyone knows everyone. Disadvantage:  Everyone knows everyone. I have always loved the camaraderie that our little town has. We pick each other up when we are in trouble. We pull together in times of need. We celebrate together. We mourn together. On the flipside, we all know each other's business and we run into each other everywhere. No one can get away with a quick trip to the local Dairy Queen without someone seeing you drowning your sorrows in a large blizzard topped with French fries. "Hey, Julie! I saw you last night eating that huge ice cream cone dipped in that bowl of hot fudge with a side of fries and a bag of Dilly Bars. Good to see you!" So there are pros and cons.

The Greatest Love of All

Disclaimer: This blog is basically me bragging about my kids and grandkid so read at your own risk.

I feel like I've always been a teacher in some way. I was always playing school as a child. When my kids were born, I started teaching them. Then I was in the classroom teaching the hundreds of kids I've taught so far.
