August 20, 2009 Remember: We All Have Lives By Eric Antuna
Grades 3–5

    Dear Friends,


    My apologies for not having content here today - my sister had an emergency room situation that took me away for most of the day.  Returning home, I reflected on a few things: 
    1. We all have lives! School encompasses so much of our time, we must make sure that we make time for ourselves and our loved ones. 
    2. Waiting in the emergency room, I noted so many kids there - young, old, but many!  I didn't leave until 11:30, but even then a family of 5 was walking into the hospital. This made me realize (yet again!) we all have lives and how quickly they do change and can become varied in just a few minutes.  


    It's important to keep this in mind when students have to go through these things that could happen at any time.


    Thankfully, my sister is doing much better, and should be returning to her self quite soon.  I promise to make it up to everyone!  


    Thank you everyone for your support and for your time!
    Eric


    One more quick note: I was waiting outside and I heard a daughter speak to her mom as they entered the hospital, "Mom! My homework!"  Mother replies, "You should have brought it, oh well!" Daughter rebuttes, "I can't have the teacher thinking that I am a slacker at the beginning of the year!"


    I thought that was too cute to let alone.
