It's the Simple Things

I have always believed that it's the simple things that mean the most.  I believe that is true in so many different areas including my two loves, photography and teaching.  For this reason, I wanted to share an example of each!

Simple Object
This is a very simple photo of a plant that was given to me by my great grandma.  It's nothing fancy or extravagant, it's just a plain ol' green leafy plant, but I think it's beautiful!  

Now, from the "teaching" world.  Today was Tuesday, but it was kind of like a Monday to us all.  So needless to say, everyone at school, both the kiddos and teachers, were a bit draggy today.  As I was greeting my kids at the doorway this morning, one of my little guys came up to me and said, "Mrs. Lerch, your hair is sticking up a little bit."  Now, you might think that he was just trying to help me out so I wouldn't be standing up teaching with my hair all messed up (I do tell my kids to help me out if my hair/clothes are ever messed up).  The funny part of this whole story is that I purposefully did "the poof" in my hairdo today, which is something out of the ordinary for me.  After my little guy made his comment, I just busted up because the hair that was "sticking up" was meant to be like that.  He said he was sorry, but I just gave him a high-five and told him thanks for helping me out, but it was supposed to be like that.  The last thing he said before walking in the room was, "If it's supposed to be like that, I like it then Mrs. Lerch."  It's the simplest things about my days at school that make me smile!  That is why I love teaching!!

To me, simple = good!
