Depending on the day, we journal, have an activity led by me, or have club time. On Tuesday, it was club time, but there was only one kid left, so we plaed around the world. I have not played that game in so long! I had not even shot a basketball in a long long time. But I actually loved it. I'm loving finding the inner kid in me. Being around these kids in the afternoon at the end of my day brings me smiles, hugs, laughter, and sometimes a little frustration. But all that being said, I'm really beginning to love my job. I don't dread going, and I feel energized when I'm done with the day. (which is good, cuz when I get home I often go stright to church, back to class, or drown myself in homework).
Ya know the best thing about kids? Life is simple to them. They are in such a hurry to grow up. A lot of the games they are playing are acting what life would be like as an adult. But if only they knew how great they have it right now. If only they could enjoy being a kid while they are one.
