Joyful words

December 2, 2009

Tara was happier than usual doing her homework last week. “My teacher has given us all joyful words for spelling this week” she happily announced. Words like ‘happiness’ and ‘Christmas’ and ‘friend’ instead of the usual fare of ‘approximate’ and ‘trapezium’ and ‘estimation’ that have little use in a six year old’s life. Who would have thought that such a small thing as choosing ‘joyful words’ for spelling homework could bring excitement and happiness. It had to have been a coincidence on the part of her teacher I thought, and very surprising. More surprising though was the discovery that the school has not totally killed off all her joy of learning…yet! (Yes, I am looking forward to the end of the school year!)

    Bless her! To be able to find joy in the little things is such a gift!

    Your post reminded me of a Sesame Street clip which we always loved when the boys were small :

    Cheers, Celia

      Cute sesame street clip. And yes, she is at such a lovely age where tiny little things are so exciting and create so much joy. If only we could all be like that eh?!
