today is my mother-in-law’s birthday. she’s an incredible person. she gives everyone the benefit of the doubt – even if they’re obviously wrong. i’ve learned so much by observing who she is, how she accepts people and her positive attitude. being part of her family feels like a gift. she’s aretired pre-school teacher.she has hundreds of songs memorized, knowledge about great books and activities to do with children and an open, loving heart. when our baby spends time with her we joke that it’s pre pre-school. i’m so happy that her influence is all around. happy birthday, grandma! <3
I don’t usually do two versions of the same illustration – but I really wanted to do this one!
Remembering MLK today, I share his words “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Have a great week!
