This is a picture of me during kindergarten. I'm in an outfit made for me by our mom. She sewed often for us and I loved those outfits made especially for me. But, having two older sisters meant I wore an outfit just like this for 5 more years. Mom also made the exact same outfit (a few sizes bigger) especially for my sisters, just like she had for me. H
and-me-downs Sharing was & is just a way of life in our family.
Other things shared in our family: support to one another, clothes, food, beds, cars, books, and places to sit. We are still a family that shares -- below are some examples:
|Cousins turning their human chair into a human recliner:)|
|My dad, helping his older brother Earl (retired administrator from Des Moines) with his hearing aid.|
|Sharing space and conversation.|
|Sharing our cookie skills with one another.|
|Learning in student friendly language|
|Jeopardy vocabulary game for 2nd grade.|
Also at Van Horne & Elementary today the entire school participated in #PositivePostItDay. Everyone shared positive notes to one another across the schools and even wrote notes for the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. It was great to be a part of this and see how excited the students were to post their notes -- even more excited than reading their own received notes.

Sharing. It's a mindset and a habit.
Are you sharing with the people in your life, your own family, co-workers and students?
Make an effort to share. Everyday.
And just in case you are wondering, do my dad and brother still share? The answer is yes...and so does my brother with his hot air balloon!
