Z is for Zion




The star of David. Another reference to our Grade Three year together when we learned about the Hebrew people trying to find a home.

This form was also one we learned to draw free-hand in Grade Five and then with compass in Grade Six.


and this square fits in with today's theme too:




Every year I brought a Menorah into the classroom to light the candles and to tell the story of the miracle of the oil. Hannukah would fall in and around the time of Advent so in December our classroom was full of candle light in the morning while we would sing our favourite Hannukah and Christmas songs.

It was such a magical time of year.

All that music.

All that light.

All that hope.

All that peace.

And miracles.

There is always room in our lives for miracles.


And so the A to Z(ed) challenge has come to an end. It has been wonderful, and healing, to recollect my eight years together with this class. It also reminded me of the years I had with my first class as many of the adventures were the same.

This quilt is so precious to me.

I am sure if you have been following this month you will understand why.

I have met some new bloggers on this challenge, so now my morning coffee and blog reading time is very full. I love that I have made new friends from far away in this blogosphere.

Thanks again to Wendy of the Rock for talking me into this. And for Edwina for making our threesome complete.

I couldn't have done it without you two.

Y is for You (with Me)



This square is also known as 'The Hug'.

I wonder how many hugs I shared with those thirty-seven students over the years?

Hundreds.

And I can not have a hug.

Without a you.

And a me.
