Life Affirming

Every year, Jack's kindergarten teacher (oh, we loved her!) organized an assembly for parents that culminated with Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

All of the kids painted big pictures of the images in the song, and whenever the lines played that matched their pictures, they held them up high over their heads. Trees of green, skies of blue and clouds of white, bright blessed days, dark sacred nights.

Jack painted a palm tree, he said, because it was my favorite.

I am trying to channel Paula as we do our own rendition of it in my class this year. Love Paula.

I think I still have the pictures my kids painted for it when they were little. Love them and that part of the program.

My second oldest will be playing the piano for Paula's Christmas program on Monday. She's totally tickled pink and so is Paula. I think she's the first one of her kindergartners to come back as an adult and participate. Can't wait.
