the turquoise shoes...

Our Saturday has been filled with cooking, shopping, and a wedding! My girls only remember one babysitter in their life. Maybe because she's worked for us for 9 years. Or maybe because she's amazing. But probably all of the above! Our sweet Kelsey got married tonight. My youngest was sad because she doesn't want to share Kelsey with the groom. Haha! Now don't get me wrong...we love that boy...but the girl has captivated our hearts for ages. :) The wedding was perfect! And my favorite part was the end. Kelsey and Daniel were walking down the stairs and as Kelsey lifted her gorgeous dress you could spy turquoise heels peeking under her hem. What a fun surprise! So very Kelsey, and it brought a smile to my face.

I'm curious. When you're teaching, do you let the real you shine? Under all of the paperwork, lesson plans, activities, and such...do your students know you? Would they be surprised by your turquoise shoes? Or would they smile because they know it's totally YOU! Let me encourage you to build relationships with your students. Captivate their hearts. Be intentional about bringing smiles to their faces.

Happy Saturday to YOU...make it count!
