Today was hard for me. I was actually a little scared to go to school today. I didn't know what today would bring for me. I wondered what questions my kiddos would have for me today. I hoped none. I was VERY thankful not.one.student mentioned today the tragedy of last Friday. I'm praying that they know nothing about it. I did change a few things today. I wore my keys around my arm today. They are usually kept in my purse and I would have to first go get them out of my purse to lock the door in case of a lockdown. Not today. Today and always they will be on me. Today I checked my lockdown spaces to make sure they were clear enough for my students to fit. Today I thought long and hard about my sweet students and what I would have done in that situation.
For the first time in a few weeks, all of my students were at school today.We had a lot of fun today. We wore our pajamas and watched The Polar Express today. We laughed today. We played today. Today was a good day. I hugged each child a little harder today. I am thankful that we had today. Thankful beyond words. My heart is so heavy today for the families of those sweet little children.
What was it like for you today?
