I don't usually post twice a day, but I have an important thought to share with you. Tsh, over at Simple Mom, posted today from her trip to the Philippines with Compassion International. Her post, What Do Kids Really Need, reminded me to really consider what kids need in life and what is just excess. She compares a child she met today with her own six year girl and found numerous similarities. It makes me reconsider my plans for my students as we wrap up the school year. I have to look at what the kids really need and what doesn't really matter.
