lola spends many days at museums, aquariums, library groups, and walks... We often go to quiet morning mass to visit with Charlie... or to run on the pews while mommy tries to grab at her coat...
now chatty lola wants
more friends, so...
mommy find the closest thing to the feel of home...
a home but with friends like she had with Charlie...
Lola visits for an hour with the St. John's Little Rays 3 year old class. She makes a gingerbread man with 3 little buttons and a green wreath. Glue, construction paper, a table friend named Kendall ("Candle" as Lola says), and her first "put on the fridge" art work...
Lola decides she'd like to go back in January three mornings a week. Mommy knows she's ready when she hears teacher say that Lola would call out loudly, "I need more BUTTONS!"
It is her home. She and Charlie have run to that same classroom since little days as it serves as the church nursery also.
And If Lola DID miss mommy?....
Well, I'll go WITH her...and be right down the hall teaching 2nd grade again... It's almost time to begin preparing for First Communion, of course.
And as an added gift, I have a student who I can speak French to all day long....
And the most fresh, little eager faces who heard the whispers weeks ago...Mrs. Normile's coming! I have chased these little faces on the playground with my lobster claw pinches since kindergarten.
Can I Teach Your Child?
Does your child want to be Lola's friend?
Stop by St. Johns and take a tour of the school...See me in my class, see Lola and "Candle" in the teeny chair room. I would love to hear that a "Team Charlie" member is joining us.
The best thing you'll love about the school will be the children your child makes friends with. Seriously. The other parents will become your closest friends. Good sweet children with fun, supportive, active parents.
And the teachers? Me? and my friends?! You'll be spoiled.
Meet the roots that kept us all from snapping.
You deserve their care also
and I'd love to see you for years in the halls and classrooms.
No, you DON'T have to be Catholic to join us,
we want all those who wish to laugh, learn, and love with us.
