fingerprint friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says: I can see the fingerprints of god. When I look at you, I can see the fingerprints of god. And I know its true. You're a masterpiece, that all creation quietly applauds. And you're covered with the fingerprints of god.

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints.(yes, we made cake balls instead of a cake)

Conference week is over. I met with 23 families to discuss assessments and behavior, strengths and weaknesses, and how to help 5 year olds learn at home.
We also met with Jack's teacher. There is always a little anxiety.
The thing is, we are proud of Jack for the kid he is...I always said I wanted happy, healthy, and KIND, GOOD kids. And we have that.
The icing on the cake is that Jack is reading at a 6th grade level, with comprehension.
He is mastering his math facts.
His journal writing and creativity makes me smile.
On top of all that, he is a good friend to his classmates.
And those emotional meltdowns are almost non-existent in the classroom.
Whew.
He is my fingerprint, and not just on Friday.
