Yesterday the team and kids returned from a two day trip to the beach. I left for the trip feeling frustrated about having a difficult time learning their names. I returned from the trip thankful for the long bus ride home that allowed me to get to know them. I spent that ride home in the back of the bus with the older kids. They remind me so much of my students back home. I’m just in awe of these kids. I can’t help but allow them to influence the way I see life! They are simply amazing.
