86. Seeing old students. Today I saw one of my former Calvin students teaching at Kaden's school. I had no idea that she taught there. She was a great student and I knew someone would snatch her up! I'm blessed beyond words to be able to teach students. I love teaching, and I love running into former students. It's not often that I run into former Calvin students, and sometimes I wonder if they'll remember anything I taught them. However, when I see former students teaching and doing what they love, I can't help but feel blessed to be a part of their educational experience :)
87. Generational blessings. Andy and I had the pleasure of attending a dress-rehearsal performance at Kaden's school today in preparation for Grandparent's Day coming up. Moments like this re-affirm for me why we make the sacrifice to send our children to a Christian school. Hearing a room full of children sing "Bless the Lord Oh my Soul" and watching students raise their hands in authentic praise to Christ is such an amazing blessing. It brings tears to my eyes, joy to my soul, and the refreshment I needed on a day like today. Watching him sing his heart out, and smile from ear to ear when he saw us sitting there was heart-warming. I'm thankful that our parents get to feel this way when they see the program in a few weeks, and that the blessing of Christian Education continues through the generations.
