As our house remains on the market, and we find ourselves still here in Pincher Creek, I have the opportunity to do some Educational Assistant work at the elementary school down the hill. I used to work there, filling in for an ill school librarian years ago while my children were still attending school there. My husband used to work there for a few years as well, so it feels pretty comfortable for me, going back into an old familiar place among lots of familiar faces.
The highlight of my first school day (yesterday) was definitely seeing so many of my dear little dayhome children, who are now students there themselves! I was delighted by how sweetly surprised most of them were to see me- at school. It’s funny how odd it can seem to little ones when they meet someone ‘out of context’, and it warms my heart to hear their sweet voices calling my name in surprise. Plus- hugs. xo
