"School is over so it is time for Ms. Kara to move."
Ms. Taylor "Where is she moving?"
"To camp. To live there."


"Ms. Kara even though I won't see you at school everyday sometimes I will just see you on the street and that will make me happy."


"Ms. Kara I want to play in the creek during my summer vacation....did you get to play in the creek during your summer vacation?"
Me "Yes, I spent lots of time playing in the creek with my sisters."
"But when you were a kid I was not born yet...so that was a long time ago....so are you sure the creek was here?

School is out for the summer!

It is very bittersweet so luckily I will get to see most of the kids at camp!

Thank you for reading and for laughing and smiling along with me. It was another amazing year filled with joy and new challenges each day. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend every day viewing the world through the eyes of these beautiful young children.

Have a wonderful summer!

When we were sitting down for snack one of the kids took the chair that Belinda wanted to sit in. She started to get upset but then calmed down and looked up at me and said...

"My mom says to breath in and then let it go."

Great advice.

"I am really strong."
Ms. Taylor "How did you get so strong?"
"I eat lots of meat."

"Ms. Kara, I need to tell you something."
Me "Yes...."
"Well ummm....I umm... accidentally broke my worm's face off."
Me "Where is your worm now?"
"In the dirt. He still has his body so I think he is okay."
