Really, I do! Once, when Rose was about 7 she asked me, “mom, what did you want to be when you were a kid?” I replied, “ a teacher. I was always playing school in my home. I would set up my bedroom for school and my stuffed animals were the students. I even had a school-like chalkboard/whiteboard that was on rollers. I loved pretending that I was a teacher.” She quickly chimed in, “Mom!!! Your dream came true…you are a teacher…you teach me at home!!!”
I had never put the two together like that before. It was a consolation that I needed at that time and one that I often need to reflect back on. God is good!

I’m not sure what happened last school year (09-10), I did not take “school” pictures. These pictures were taken at the start of the school year, a field to the Sisters of the Cross.

I love the uniforms. So do the children. In fact, when I asked the little ones to get a dress on for this school year’s (2010-11) pictures, they returned with their uniforms on. Thus, I postponed school pictures. I would have moved forward but Rose does not have a uniform anymore and I wanted to have “free-dress.”
