30 Days of Thankfulness- Day 13
Today, I'm thankful for George Washington. Okay, that's kind of tongue-in-cheek, although he was an amazing guy. But today I got to teach in the elementary class of our other co-op...a history one. And although I taught on the Civil War, and Beth and I did fun games and interactive lesson activities and read a book, etc., when it came time to do review, one little boy answered an enthusiastic "George Washington" to everything. He and his 6 siblings were adopted from Asia...Latvia or Ukraine or something like that...just last year, so it's amazing how well they already interact and do so well in English, which is NOT their native tongue...but clearly sometimes it gets to be a bit much for this little guy and good ole' George is his default answer. It was awesome. I'm thankful for his family answering God's call for adoption of this large sibling group, and I'm thankful for the G.W. chuckle.
