A week of friendship!

Can I just say how sweet, innocent and hilarious first graders can be! Our lesson the first week of school always centers around friendship and how to become someones friend. Little 5 and 6 year olds truly have to be shown how friends treat each other and what you need to do to be a good friend to others. Its always something MOST know about, but it always seems like there are some who need to be shown....A very enriching time for us adults in the classroom because we see the little ones getting to know one another and how hopefully this is the building block for a lifetime of good friendships...

This leads me into a very big THANK YOU to Cathy B of "With Needle and Thread"...Cathy read my blog a few days back and saw that I had commented that my LHN kit had shorted me in my brown floss...She emailed me and very graciously mailed me the floss...and even included some "reds" to add to my collection.....I have not actually met Cathy nor have I spoken to her on the phone...she is a friend I have gotton to know through this wonderful forum of blogging and stitching. Now THAT is what friendship is all about! We as a collective group are so fortunate to have one another...So to Cathy and all my stitching friends, Thank you being out there for me!!



Have a great weekend and make contact with a friend that you may or may not have talked to in a while....or spend time with your best friend like Phillip and Truffles are doing....Oh, and happy stitching everyone!! Faye

Morning "Girlfriend", Truffles looks like a wonderful loving friend for Phillip. That is such a great photo. How fun for you to experience the innocence of a large group of young one's. Friendship is so inportant to us in life, true friends see you through the ups and downs in life. I found my best friend when I was in 3rd grade, and I love her like a sister!!!!

Oh, I love first-graders. They're my favorite to work with. Who else but young kids will hold your hand on the way down the hall?

Love the photo! That's one to be framed.

I didn't see your post unitl today and it struck me. You see out of the blue on Sat. I had an hour long conversation with a sweet cousin (and friend) that I had lost touch with for a couple of years.

How perfect that I read your post today since I did just what you asked. :)

Isn't funny about how you have to teach them about friends? They need to be reminded everyday, even the older students. It's a shame that alot of them are all about me, me, me. They learn that from their parents. Glad that you have had a a good first week. My sister's a teacher, she teaches 4th grade science and social studies and she has told me even she had a great first week! Wahoo to good kids!
