It snowed for ten minutes before I left for work this morning, so I know today will be a good day. Today is Violet’s birthday, and she turns four; the last in my classroom to hit that milestone. To these kids, every birthday is still magical, and this light snowfall is a present they hadn’t been expecting. Today, we will learn about polar bears, and Ellis will tell me something new about the commuter rail, and Bobbi will trip and fall but get back up again, and they will teach me how easy it is to be happy.
