sweet moments

The new school year has begun and I have 16 new students.
The first few weeks are always crazy, and exhausting....

I have bus duty this year so after school I stand outside in the hot sun and wait for all the bus kids to get on their buses. The first two weeks were absolutely crazy, all 40 1st grade bus kids walking outside in one line, finding there 8 different bus lines...yeah.

The other day I was exhausted, standing outside. One of my students was in line about to get on his bus and he shouted my name and motioned for me to come over to him. I was worried he forgot something important in the classroom so I rushed over to him.

When I got to him he gave me a HUGE hug and said " I just didn't get to hug you goodbye, see you tomorrow" it was so sweet. He is one of those kids who give the best hugs every time. My job can be so tiring, and some mornings it's hard to get out of bed...
but those sweet moments make it ALL worth it!
