(Indulge me as I share three of my favorite little-bubba pics--I can't resist.)

We got another glimpse of Bubba through the eyes of his teachers last week at his parent-teacher conference. His teachers used these words to describe him:
sees God in life easily
a strong faith--he "gets it"
a careful communicator
a deep thinker
quick to serve
bold to share his faith verbally
We did talk briefly about some of his academic challenges, but the conference focused on qualities that will exist well-past his 4th grade academic achievements.
My heart swells. Not with pride (well, maybe a little) but with gratitude. Gratitude for teachers who take the time to really know my son. Gratitude for their willingness to share their observations with us, rather than just focusing on reading and math. Gratitude for this marvelous boy that God has given us the privilege of parenting.
