My children and I went tothe university today and stopped by my husband’s class to put up a key. His class was already in session when we arrived. As we were leaving the classroom, my five-year old son looked up at his dad and said, “Dad, I love you because you are a teacher.” You could hear the students in the classroom make an audible sigh. Out of the mouth of babes.
On a separate note, graduation day is 10 days away. It is hard to believe that I have finished my graduate work. I remember the day that I defended my thesis and passed. I felt like there should be a 21 gun salute followed by a ticker tape parade but it was rather anticlimatic. I guess the pomp and circumstance comes on graduation day. Regardless, I have accomplished a goal that I had set some time ago and it feels good.
