When I accepted a part-time Nanning job over the summer for this sweet little girl, I had all sorts of visions running through my (early childhood education college degree) mind. She was the perfect age for learning letters and numbers and patterns and developing fine motor skills and all types of exciting cognitive developments. I couldn’t wait to teach her!! Turns out, she had way more to teach me this summer.
Little things like: the importance of front porch sitting
She also taught me how to be a faithful friend to our furry counterparts ;)
She reminded me how to play pretend & the importance of long distance phone calls to loved ones (pretending to call her father who is currently deployed)
She even taught me how to frolic in flowery fields, take time to smell the flowers, bask in the early morning sunshine on our 730 am walks..
And to believe in a little magic!
