Saturday was my first “nephew’s” twelfth birthday. It’s hard to believe he’s already twelve! Why I remember when he was just a pup…
Yes, my first nephew was a puppy, but not for long! Somebody told me that having a sister ages you. Enter Grendel.
She’s not nicknamed “The Monster” for nothing, you know!
I’ve taken many pictures of the hounds over the years; it’s hard to choose my favorite. But this one with McBro is definitely high on the list:
It’s sure hard to resist this little face:
Happy Birthday, old man! You deserve a nap today!!
Happy Birthday, McTeach
Well, they did it. My wonderful seventh graders actually had me speechless this morning! Don’t worry…I got over it. But it took a moment or two.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your birthday gifts. The album of notes from my students was, by far, the best gift I could have received…even better than chocolate. I know!! Can you imagine such a thing? Well, actually, you could if you were a teacher feeling so much love and appreciation from her students.
I especially loved what one student wrote: “We’re not just a class and a teacher…we’re a family.” That’s so very true. You’re the first people I think of in the morning, and the last people I think of at night. I carry you in my heart wherever I go, and am ever-so-grateful that God brought all of us together.
Many, many thanks for making this teacher feel so very special, so very loved.
