"Change" #kinderblog13

This week's prompt for #kinderblog13 is
Oh, I know change.  
It twists me into shapes I didn't think possible.
It reveals images that are brand new.
It makes me sweat, cry, and generally act like a toddler.

Definition: the act, process, or result of making different, 
the frequent and usually sudden passing from one condition to another

Change can happen in a heartbeat.

To me, change is like walking through the curtain of drops in a waterfall.
There exists space on each side--the before and the after.
I spent the entire month of June on one side, waiting to see if
the private school where I taught would open the doors this fall.
As I listened to the voicemail that declared a waterfall of change,
I looked at the other side and saw the synonyms:
refashioning, remaking, transformation, metamorphosis.

 I've been given the opportunity to 
teach kindergarten in a large public school district.
A new adventure, a story waiting to be told,
a gift that wouldn't have been made possible without

I think the time is right for a butterfly tattoo!


  1. I was so inspired by the beauty of your words that I had to go back and read them again to get all the meaning. Public education will tear at your heartstrings, but it seems to me they will in turn hear beautiful music!

  2. Congratulations Chrissy! So glad God has led you to this opportunity. Best of wishes on your new journey and can't wait to hear all about it!

    Fun in PreK-1 & Kinder

  3. Beautiful!

    Good luck on your new adventure!


  4. What a blessing you will be to even more kids and other teachers. I think it is time for the tattoo, too!

  5. I can't believe I finally met you and we spent less than four seconds together. I had no idea you were coming to Vegas!!! I need to see you again next year and leave you a cell phone number. Dinner is a must. Okay I have calmed down now and I know this transition will go well. You are all that and more... ask for anything.
    Love, Fran

  6. Butterflies are good. All schools and all students need butterflies in their midst.


Thanks for being part of my story!
