Dates with the kiddos!

6 Sep

Last week I had a date with some of my old students! September is kind of a hard time for me. The holiday season and the end of the year are tied. I just miss them so, so much! If you didn’t know, I worked for the school district for five years, but was lucky enough to stay at one particular school for four of them. You can read more about that here.

I LOVE this kiddo. I remember pushing her on the swings when she was in kinder, listening to her read books far beyond her grade’s reading level in first grade, and seeing her blossom in second. It’s been a year since I’ve seen her, but it was so wonderful to catch up over one of my favs, frozen yogurt!

For the past three years I would also tutor two of the sweetest, kindest boys. We had so much fun going over the alphabet and working on long division! One of the greatest moments about working with kids is at the end of the day they don’t want to leave you. Just because they want to learn more. They look exactly the same, but soooo tall! I can truly say that I love this family. The momma is so positive and loving, just how I hope to be someday.

She invited me over to show her how to make a tres leches cake, Italian buttercream and chocolate frosting. It was fun fun fun doing this while sipping mimosas and chatting away! I was sipping, but somehow my mimosa always stayed full:)

Here’s a picture of them grubbing away…

Sometimes you forget how sitting and chatting with kids can completely light up your day. I miss having them in my daily life. I miss their stories, their excitement, and teaching them new things. Somehow I need to figure out how to merge my passion for baking and my love for these kids.
