I love bears!

On one of my first teaching pracs I had a year one class with a boy who was absolutely nuts about bears - grizzly bears, black bears, polar bears, he was a 6 year-old-expert on everything to do with bears. I now understand why. Having seen some up close I am now absolutely in awe of these amazing creatures which on the one hand are so beautiful and sweet - this fellow was very relaxed making his way through the dandelions and feasting on flowers as he went - and also absolutely frightening. I am really looking forward to starting teaching again in September and to being surrounded by inspiring children who are in awe of the world and creation.


  1. What a marvellous thing to be in awe of... children are blessings for certain. I love the cheeriness of this bear surrounded by daisy chains, I want to nuzzle his neck with my palm!


Thank you for visiting and for your comments and thoughts, it is really lovely to hear from you.
