This week I’ve had a single word pumping through my veins, “renewal.” It’s easy to see why I might have this word at the forefront of my mind. Looking out at our campus there is a sense of “thawing” taking place. The daffodils and lilies are wrestling old man winter and his grip grows shaky, he can not hold for long. The birds who desperately sought food on the ice but two weeks ago, are now singing out a joyous song. One tree in our courtyard felt the sunshine on her back and was so excited, she burst out in radiant blooms!
Meanwhile, in every classroom nervous energy has settled into the bodies of our students, after all, they are staring Spring Break in the eye and they know they can not blink. To channel some of this energy, our 6th graders got their hands in the soil and filled the front flower pots with pops of color. Our host class will take on the fun of watering these flowers each day at lunch.
Our 8th grade young men are getting the opportunity to restore some of our old wooden desks that just needed a little elbow grease and love to really shine. Stay tuned to see how they turn out!
In all ways we are seeing the joy of the renewal.
On that note, here are some notes for the following weeks!
