Our school campus looks like Fall. I love all of the leaves on the ground. And,so do our students !

awwww.... i love it vb.....just like raising our children/ and taking care of grandbabies...it is in the small gifts given freely from their little hearts that fill ours and make each day so worth it and gives us the strength to begin a new day with hearts overflowing once again.
love it!

I am wondering if you aren't in education if you can truly appreciate what this means??????? I love children!!

Love it, the wonder of discovery and the joy of sharing it...the meaning behind your leaf represents just one of the many reasons I am working so hard to change professions. It makes me smile to think of the joy you experienced when you saw this on your desk.

Reminds me of how our cat used to catch a mouse and then leave it at the front door as a gift for my mom! Well, maybe not exactly the best comparison ... kids can be so thoughtful and just melt your heart by doing things like that!

The present of that leaf says so much about your relationship with your students! Whoever gave it to you saw the beauty in it and knew that you would, too. It speaks volumes about who you are as a person and teacher! I love that you took the picture so you could savor the feeling you felt when you first saw it on your desk long after the leaf is gone.
Love you tons!
