I love my job. I love my job because I love my kids. Today's service was great. Not so much because my message was amazing, or the game was phenomenal (although it was) but because today was a day that I felt super cared for by my kids.
Now, don't get me wrong. I've felt like my students cared about me for some time. But something about the conversations I had between the services and after today that made me feel pretty good. I mean, these were 8th grade guys, so the conversations were mostly ridiculous. But they were a great reminder of why I do what I do.
Our game was awesome! I had the students put pantyhose over their heads and then they had to eat pudding through the hose. It might have been one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I couldn't stop laughing and neither could the students!
I love my job...
