A one in a million kind of afternoon

Usually in my week, there are a few great moments that I walk away with thinking- "THIS is why I do what I do". This post takes the cake for events though. Big Brothers Big Sisters tutoring started at school, and it was out of this world. High school students from our neighborhood came over on a bus for a part of their afternoon and tutored some of our struggling students. Not only was this an educational event that will be happening every other week, but it was beneficial from a social and emotional aspect as well. To see the elementary student's faces and how excited they were to be with "someone so old" and learn from there- was an amazing experience as a fly on the wall. BBBS is a phenomenal program that we are very fortunate to have and I cannot wait to see where this year takes both sets of students as they grow and prosper academically, socially and emotionally.

With tons of love and happiness today,
