Joy in sledding...Conspiracy of naughtiness.

Hello! Last night I was going to post about "joy in sledding," but blogger was freezing and wouldn't let me. I was going to rave about how awesome of a day Tuesday was, but today tainted my vision of the wonderful post because it turned to a conspiracy of naughtiness. Funny how that works.

Tuesday and Wednesday my awesome coworker was sick. But, thankfully Tuesday was a really good day anyways. Tuesday was "bring your favorite outside toy" day, and someone brought the most perfect sized sled for a two-year-old with a rope attached for me to pull it. It was so great and the kids had such fun! It makes the 20 minutes before of getting everyone's snowpants, boots, coat, hat, and mittens on so worth it. Their laughs and smiling faces were such a blessing to be a part of. I was sweating by the time I was done! Also, one of my kids who I have been struggling with some behavior wise had a super good day on Tuesday, and we even called dad to tell him about it, I was so proud.

But, today I think my kids had a secret meeting before school and decided to revolt and all be naughty together. This was one of the worst behavior days I've had in awhile. It was unreal how off almost everyone was. The student who had a super good day on Tuesday had one of their top worst days today.

On the bright side, we did have a really good Bible time today. I was so encouraged. This week at school we are talking about how Jesus chose 12 disciples and they were followers of Jesus. We've been talking about how we can be disciples. Today we looked through a picture book of Bible stories we have learned about, such as Noah, Jonah, David/Goliath, Daniel, Mary/Joseph, and talked about whether or not they were good disciples of Jesus and why or why not. It was incredible how well they remembered previous stories and were about to talk about them and make connections. I was so happy! Their little hearts for Jesus are inspiring and encouraging.

So, there you have it, the highs and lows of teaching, all within a few days. Thankfully, the good so outweighs the bad. :)
