Today was the day my kids' school lets you embarrass your high school and middle school aged children by sitting in on one of their classes. Dh and I went to observe dd1's History class, and it made us really, really happy about our decision to send our kids to this school. It has its issues but the teachers are outstanding. Also, every kid seemed to have done the reading and was participating in the discussion. It's an Honors class, but still. My 10th grade history teacher wasn't bad, but I was one of a handful of kids who ever raised my hand, and we were surrounded by eye-rolling hair flippers who radiated contempt for anyone who showed interest in the subject matter. (Or slept. Depended on the day.)
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
