Holy Crap!

On Sunday, Tommy's class talked about Daniel and the lion's den and they got these cute cut-outs that his teacher put in a plastic bag. I didn't even think about them when we got home from church, and they got left on the floor of the van. Well, this morning, since it was so windy, they almost blew out of the car when I took Tommy to school, and Tommy went after them. He caught them and showed them proudly to his teacher. She ooh-ed and ahh-ed over them and asked Tommy if he wanted to bring it to class to share! So, I was thinking, "Oh, crap, some parent is going to get wind of this and Tommy will be suspended and he's not even in kindergarden yet!" I guess I've spent too much time in Plano ISD, but I worried about it all day! I got home, and took out his folder to find this note from his teacher: "It was a blessing to us for Tommy to bring in the cutout of 'Daniels and the lion's den'! We loved hearing him tell us about the Bible story. Thank you!" Whew! I was glad that Tommy didn't get in trouble and that the teacher enjoyed it, but I will definitely be more careful about what is left in the car!

Ah, that's the lesson I taught my kids (my actual class). I had these little lions, that had their head separated from the body (hmm, that sounds a little gruesome *LOL*), which we attached with a brad, and it could move around. They really liked that.

You know, most school districts will have issues with religion, but you'd probably find that most individual teachers think it's ridiculous! It's always the parents that cause a problem!

Wow, would Plano really care? What a great chance for Tommy to share what he's learning other places!

I think the kids can say whatever they want to say, it's when the teachers endorse it that it becomes iffy.
