sorry

After missing the bell today at recess, Jack found that his class had already lined up and had gone back to the room. When he told me about it today, I explained that just like a mom, teachers worry. I told him, think about when we are at a store, and I can't see you. I get worried right? (yes, he agreed). So, I said, teachers have 24 "kids" to worry about...so, it made your teacher nervous when you weren't there. After apologizing, with some tears, he decided to write his teacher a letter, all on his own. ( I know, it's hard to see, my scanner isn't working, so I had to take a picture of it). I am proud of Jack tonight. I always am, but tonight, he made me especially proud :)

I imagine that when Jack realized his class had disappeared that HE was feeling nervous, too. Glad he was able to put those feelings into words; I'm sure Jenn will appreciate his heartfelt note.

He has the sweetest spirit and good conscience that so many kids today don't have.

Awww...Sarah, this happened to me in Kinder. I still really remember it. Glad to hear Jack is handling it well:) Tomorrow is a new day where I am sure he will listen closely for the bell:)

I did appreciate the note and what made it even more special was that he wanted to do it on his own. He is so sweet :).
