the perfect mix of sunshine and cool breezes of
this weekend at the fall festival
the way you still call me 'Boo Boo' and yelled
'take my picture!' for each ride you went on.
the excitement in your eyes as you discovered you
were big enough to ride the bigger rides by yourself.
the excitement mixed with fear I had when you wanted to ride by yourself.
the silent prayer I said for you as the ride began...I do that so much more as you become
the butterflies in my stomach as the ride began. These must be the same ones I felt when
you took your first steps.
the way you ran to hug me with a huge smile on your face after the ride was over.
the truth of how blessed I am to have you as a teacher.
