Because they know I love pink
School has finished up for the year, and we are all very excited (and not a little relieved) to be on summer holidays. You don't know what kids take in until they do something that makes you aware of the little, seemingly insignificant things.
Apparently the two students who brought me these gifts noticed that pink is my favourite colour. It might have been the new pink phone. Or the phone cover - also pink. And flowery. Perhaps it was the computer with the pink shell-cover. Could also have been the heart necklace with the pink fake-pearl in it. Either way two of my students were so observant they chose to bless me with pink gifts on Tuesday.
The macarons were delicious, and tasted pink, if that were even possible. The lychee hand cream smells divine. And pink.
I don't think you're meant to have favourite students, but I have a little handful of kids that have certainly touched a soft place in my heart. Lucky for me I get to keep a couple of them next year. But the ones leaving my classroom, or leaving the school, are definitely taking a little piece of my heart with them.
And a little bit of pink!
