Give Hugs!

I am sorry that I haven't posted since Saturday. Sadly, I found out one of my students from last year passed away. He was only 14. He was such a spirited kid, a class clown who loved poking fun at me and pointing out my many mistakes! :-) I spent the day playing with Calvin and counting down the minutes till Jordan and Max came home so I can give them both a HUGE hug. Life is so precious.
