soul_wanderer Don't worry, your screen is still intact. I usually don't post things like this but it reminded me of something I wanted to share with you a while back. This was drawn by Joja (not the heart, I only showed him how it worked) the morning my sister came home with the twins. We had already played a while and he saw me checking my messages (which I rarely do with him around) and he immediately sat down on my lap and played around on the phone and for a few minutes I let him. I asked him "Do you want to draw?" And he said yes so I opened my sketching app for him and told him he had to choose a colour first (he never once made a mistake in naming them correctly) and then he started doodling with a big smile on his face. And then he found the whatsapp button, clicked on it and said "to mama" and I was mildly shocked. Clicking on the button he found the picture of his mum and sent it to her without my help and I wondered when he learned that (sure, we always tell him when we're writing with someone he knows but still) and it made me realize how different his childhood was from mine. For a moment I felt slightly guilty but I have also learned that he well knows his boundaries & I'm glad about that. I allowed him to draw for 5 minutes because god I was tired and needed a break and everything be damned for once I gave in. He doesn't know what a tv is for but every once in a while we will show him short clips or pictures on the phone and that's ok because he grows up technic free otherwise. And that's how I got my much needed break and had a happy boy who jumped up after a few minutes to play in the reality once again with the strict words "no phone" and god, sometimes I really love this boy for the wisdom he possesses that is way beyond his actual age! 9h

shamacib I got teary eyed as I signed the last Spirit Card of the season. We've watched these girls grow and change in amazing ways! I'm so fortunate to have been a part of this journey with them. Until next year girls, CHEER ON!! #cheer #cheerleaders #coach #teachthemwell #empowerthem #spirit #bittersweet 6d

f1rewalker It's a #DifferentWorld - I've been doing a field placement in a suburban middle school the past 7 weeks; well today I started at my urban, city middle school placement and they threw me in with the sharks (on day one). Talk about getting your feet wet, sheesh! #OutWithTheOld #InANewSchool #MrBankston still gotta job to do #TeachThemWell 6d
