sharing is caring!

so my school bff
sent me a text the other day that said
"some lady is bringing some books to my office, i'll let you know when they get here, you can have some for your classroom."

YAY! free books! i love that!

i got a text from her friday that said
"seriously?
the books....
ARE HERE!"

OH BOY! :)

so after school, i talked to her
and she told me the story
and it was just toooo sweet not to share...

so a lady, who is a parent at another school in our school system,
and her daughter
brought the books to our school.

the sweet lady said that the kids at her daughter's school had heard that the kids at our school didn't have very much money for books, and the kids decided do do a book drive.

they collected three huge boxes full of books

and decorate the boxes to let the kids know they were thinking of them

just cause!

how stinking sweet is that!!!

my kids don't know it yet,
but they will spend tomorrow reading, reading, reading,
and making thank you note cards
for these precious children who thought enough about them to share with them! :)

Wonderful for other children, teachers & schools to respond so positively: awesome community! (And your love for getting & reading books is contagious--better than Swine Flu!)
