Out of the mouth of babes…

wisdom rock

   I am often surprised by the students at SJV.  I am well aware that I am working with very responsible and intelligent children, but at times, something happens that absolutely makes me wonder how they can be so young yet so wise.  When I assigned a journal write last week- having the students give advice (acrostically)- I had no idea that when reading their entries, I would be so impressed with their innocent understanding of life and the world around them.  I asked permission to share some of their words of knowledge.  I will post a few each week.  I hope you are left shaking your head and smiling like I was.
