A few weeks ago, my son's first grade teacher asked me if I would come into class one day and photograph the children doing their academic thing. I could not have been more excited about this project, since it combined three of my favorite things in the whole world:
1. my children
2. my camera
Our family is blessed to be a part of the Coventry Christian Community. For the last few years we have watched our kids thrive under the care of the teachers there. From Scotty's first year in Pre-K, when Ms. Paula gifted him with a HUGE set of dinosaur books (just because she found them at a yard sale and remembered how Scotty loved dinosaurs) to Brady's Pre-K year with Ms. Shannon (whom the kids love so much they hug her goodbye every single day) to the present with Mrs. Fisher guiding Scotty into the best little reader around- we know that being at CCS is an amazing gift for us.
And it's not just the teachers at Coventry. It's the students, the classmates who love my kids, who laugh with them, and hug them, and hold their hands when they're sad. It's the parents of these kids who have become great friends. And it's the joy that comes from knowing that my children are walking in truth. (3 John 1:4)
So here are a few of my favorite images from my morning with Mrs. Fisher's 1st grade class. Truly, these kids are a wonderful group, due in large part to their wonderful teacher (and teacher's assistant, Mrs. Weeden!). I loved spending the morning with them all.
As a parent, it is the greatest feeling to know my children are in such good hands each day. And so this is my small way of saying thank you to our Coventry Christian School community. I thank God every single day for the blessing of CCS. My kids are Coventry kids and I am so proud of it!
