Gratitude

I apologize for getting this out so late this week. These girls above are to blame. We spent the weekend at Ray Roberts camping and celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week and Mother's Day.


Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! And once again, I hope everyone knows how appreciated you are for being an educator. There is no higher calling; thank you for everything that you do for students!
