Director's Blurb

In the month of May, take a lesson from the flowers and go out and enjoy the sun. I always loved having flowers growing in my classroom windowsill; they were a reminder of how much we need to see and feel the sun -- particularly this year after what feels like a very long and cold winter.


The flower that starts out so straight and tall develops an unhealthy lean when the sun is just out of its reach. It has to bend and lengthen to try to get its face to find the sun. If you don't keep turning the plant to reach the sun, it soon will not be very pleasing to the eye.


I am the very same way. I can't wait to get out and soak up the rays of the sun and turn my face to feel it bright and warm on my cheeks! God created the most beautiful classroom there can be in the great outdoors. Take the time to encourage a child to spend time outside by modeling for them the importance of learning from and in nature. Let's all take a lesson from the flowers and go out to enjoy the beautiful spring weather that has finally come our way!
