So, I volunteered this year - lots - for my daughter's classroom. Today was a special "reception" for those of us who volunteered throughout the year. Anything to do with kids, that's sweet, almost always makes me tear up. They did this special thing with big cards that spelled out "Thank You!" and, of course, it almost made me tear up. I held my ground, though & didn't let them actually well. I have no idea why this happens to me, butit does. Christmas carols....OMG! I am so bad with that. & when Maia did her first program this year, it was sooooo hard to keep myself from crying. Again, I really have no idea why. It just happens & I get overcome by emotions.
Today was a lovely gesture by her teacher & we all got a foam framed picture of them holding up the Thank you! It'll be amazing looking back at them a few years from now. It always is.
Tomorrow, the kids are headed out on their final field trip. I'm kind of worried about the weather. it's supposed to be quite hot with a high heat index. I hope there are enough chaperones and that they watch all these little ones in the heat. This was one thing I didn't want to volunteer for. I'm just not into the outdoor stuff unless it's cooler weather.
