When you’re in graduate school you have a lot of homework.
When you’re in graduate school for Elementary Education, sometimes it’s fun homework.
My teacher for Methods in Teaching Reading gave us an assignment at the beginning of the semester to find or make a bookshelf that we will be able to use in our classroom one day. Naturally, I asked my handy-man-of-a-dad if he would help me! We went to Lowe’s on Black Friday (the only place I went shopping) to buy wood for my bookshelf. Then we started the project!
After measuring, marking, drilling, and screw driving we actually built a book shelf! It was one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving this year. I will lock this memory away. I’m so thankful for my Dad!
PS: He just had a birthday yesterday where he turned the year he thought he was turning last year…bonus year! Thankful for the joy and laughter he brings to our family!
