Love and it's Logic



Love and Logic

This summer has had a lot of Love and Logic.

On our first day of the program when the children arrived I thought, "Oh boy this will be a long summer." There was a particular little boy name Charles*(names have been changed) who stayed busy, would never sit down, and always kept his teachers on their toes.

I watched this little boy react and act towards certain things. I thought to myself, "He's not bad, just misguided and he needs attention." The whole day was, "Sit down, don't do that." By the end of the day I was tired and frustrated, but I refused to give up on him.

At the end of the day I told he and his mom that he would be my best friend by the end of the summer program. I saw a sparkle in eyes and he thought that was so funny and he laughed.

I assumed he laughed because no one, especially an adult, has ever told him that they would best friends. The next morning things were better and a lot calmer. He came in with an amazing smile ready to learn.

Every day has been an adventure with an awesome kid.
