I’ve had a rough few days. Without going into the details, things at work have been stressful. My students, ever the caring loving souls they are, just seemed to know when I needed a hug or smile.

Today, as I walked the last bus group out to line up, one little girl said, “Mr. A., it’s a long weekend – you must need extra hugs to get you through until next week.”

I did and when she gave me them, the other sprouts came over and joined in. It was pretty freakin’ awesome. It really is all about the kids.
