The new school year has officially begun for most students. But we Davidsons are always doing school. Have I ever mentioned how thankful I am that our little "students" don't have to go off to spend their days with other people? Not that there's anything wrong with other people, per se. It's just that...these "students" of mine are always here--surrounding me, keeping me company, letting me watch them grow with each and every moment. I don't miss a thing. I don't have to be away from them all day long and then have to squeeze in time with them in what's left of the day to try to get to know them. I am so grateful. These are our student portraits.
