Today my grandmother would have been 100 years old!
She passed away in 2009 but she has never passed from my heart. I learned so many things from her and just think about what an awesome birthday she must be having in heaven --- all her family around her along with all the angels in heaven! I think I'm jealous!
Either way --- Happy Birthday Grandma!
Here on earth -- my bus kids made it through yesterday so we now total 15 days with no discipline slips! Remember that 5 days was record breaking so this is . . . without words!
As for the stories --- each afternoon --- the very second we drop off at the second to last stop --- the remaining kids (about 15) move to the front of the bus and start asking (quite loudly) for stories!
Yesterday I tried something new. Jesus used parables (stories) to teach while He was here on earth. And even though I have to be very careful with "religion" on the bus --- I told the story of Joseph and what his brothers did and how sometimes we might want to do something bad to someone who has done something bad to us but . . .
To my surprise, most of the kids recognized the story and knew it. But one little boy was mesmerized and listened to every word. We had alot of fun with it and so I imagine the story telling will continue -- with a bit of "religion" brought in here and there -- so satan --- better just get off my bus because I've got news for you --- WE WIN THE BATTLE!!!!!
Until next time . . . we're taking our grandchildren to the circus this evening and I plan on having the time of my life as I've never been to a circus so . . . fun --- here we come!!!!
