Today Sarah was in a rush to get to her new school; I had to take her picture in the bed of the truck. The El Pino Bilingual Kindergarten is at a new location, and she wanted to see her new classroom and her new teacher!
We are getting ready for a new school year. I wanted to share with you our school Bible verse. Proverbs 9:10. The students see it around the school throughout their day. The verse reminds us of the purpose of the school, to educate children in the wisdom that comes from God. Please pray for us as we prepare for our school year.

Ms. Cooper’s Kindergarten Class is learning about plants this week, and they planted a small garden in the school.
What is the name of God? Why in our Christian Bibles, hymns, and worship songs is he sometimes called Yahweh, Jehovah or Adonai? Here is a short video published by FaithLifeTV that gives a great explanation. https://faithlifetv.com/items/355808
Today I blew up. A parent came to me complaining and attacking me. What she was complaining about was not the school or a teacher but that she had not paid her bill. Fortunately for me, my blowing up was internal, well mostly. When I returned to my desk, I read the devotional for today from “Our Daily Bread” called “It’s in the Attitude.
Your attitude can affect other’s responses. Fortunately, when I looked past the woman’s attitude and saw that she was aggressive because she could not pay, I reevaluated my response. Her aggressiveness was her self-defense, I could see that vulnerability, and I helped her and solved her problem. Her attitude initially affected my attitude. Thanks to God I took a deep breath and all was well. I wish I always handled things well.

Dear God, When I have problems teach me to accept them with joy and let you work instead of my hurt or anger.
