Today one of the sweetest people I know made my day. This young lady is in the 8th grade and has the biggest heart. I have learned so much from her. I can't even begin to tell you what a special young lady she is.
Last year when she learned that I would not being teaching 8th grade this year, she cried for hours. :) It broke my heart, but also made me feel good. This year she is my aide for 2 class periods.
Today she walked into my room with a big white box. I knew immediately. Not only is this girl beautiful inside and out, but she is also very talented. She made me a birthday cake. Her cakes not only look good, but they are so delicious! Oh my goodness, they are good. I keep looking for an excuse to hire her. :)
Anyways, we have this running joke about turtles because she wore a shirt last year that had a turtle on it. I know that doesn't make sense. I don't really remember how the joke got started, but turtles are our thing. Thus, my turtle birthday cake. Isn't it cute!
niaw: listen up.
