The first time C did when I got back was to run to me, excitedly waving a note in her hands...
Her first love note!
It actually got me quite flustered because I wasn't expecting her to be receiving such letters at her age. Then she revealed that it was Renee (and not a boy... phew!) who had done the card for her. I managed a smile and told her it was a pretty card. (I really meant it! Ha ha!)
That evening, C sat herself down to make her favourite teacher, Miss Novelle a card too.
From a teacher to another, I can understand completely how it feels to receive such a gift from someone under our charge. And it is heartening to know that C feels this way about her teacher.
