Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright has been visiting with many of her favorite children the last two weeks. She and Ole Mr. Johns have been having a great time taking the children to the park to see the ducks in the pond, to the amusement park where the children rode the roller coaster and the Ferris wheel screaming and laughing the whole time and to the beach where they built a very large fort with sand and water. WHEwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!
She and Ole Mr. Johns hope your last two weeks were as much fun. One thing she learned, as well as how tired young children can make you, was how much they can teach you. She and Ole Mr. Johns learned how to see each experience through young eyes and it made everything so much more fun. She learned one again, that life is great, and her life is great.
Well, the holidays are over and it is time to get back to work.
How were yours spent?
Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright’s holidays were filled with visits to family and friends. One such visit left her asking herself “When is a child no longer a child, but an adult?” Possible answers include when they turn 18 or 21; when they have a child of their own; when they get married; when they are financially self- sufficient. Hmmmmmm.
What do you think?
Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright is confused as she has been told that any of the above qualified for adulthood. Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright is confused because she was taught to believe that a child had to earn the respect of other adults to be called a peer, an adult.
Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright loves all of her children, all children. There is such a joy in watching a small infant grow, mature into a whole intelligent being, able to conquer the challenges of life. Miss Nana Wyshall B. Wright continues to hope and pray that those challenges can be met with similar strategies and that the consequences of their failures and successes judged fairly with patience and love.
