Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
This is a post about being LOST. But … it’s ALSO a post about being FOUND! We hope you’re SITTING down, because it DOESN’T start OUT pretty!
Are you familiar with the fairytale Cinderella? Well, THIS is just a LITTLE bit like that … but … it’s ALSO quite a LOT different! Snuggle up with your FAVOURITE teddy bear because it’s GOING to be PRETTY bumpy for a bit! Don’t worry, though, MOST fairytales end on a BETTER note than they began! 😉
Once upon a time, there was a blog. It was just a LITTLE blog, run by a small but MIGHTY group of Grade Three students at Battalion Park School. As a matter of fact, THIS little blog was a history of their journey helping to build a library in a very rural and extremely poor weaving village in Q’enqo Peru over the past four years. Now, this tiny blog ALSO captured OTHER pieces of their learning journey, as they worked hard to flatten the walls of their classroom … to connect and learn with the world BEYOND their school walls.
One day, these lovely little bloggers awoke to discover that … their BLOG was … MISSING! Poof! JUST like THAT! After several weeks of trying VERY hard to find out what happened, they began to realize that maybe they WOULDN’T be able to do HUGE math challenges with the revolver map, or learn about the various countries that would visit the blog on the flag counter, ever again. There MIGHT not EVER be anymore posts about their journey, their discoveries, their wonders, their Skypes, their connections. They DIDN’T give UP, though … they KEPT on trying … and … they REACHED out and asked for help because they BELIEVED in the POWER of a FLAT class!
And … JUST like Cinderella was RESCUED by her SPECIAL Fairy Godmother … the Global Grade 3 Blogging Hawks were RESCUED by … NOT one, but TWO very special BLOG fathers! We’re even LUCKIER than Cinderella! WE have TWO!
This blog post is dedicated to these two VERY special people. Brant Parker and David Cloutier … THANK you, SO much, for doing everything you could to bring our blog BACK to life! What follows is a special video to let you know just HOW much this blog means to us, and some of the reasons why we MISSED it SO much. We hope you enjoy it!
We think our BLOG Fathers ROCK! We WONDER if they can work MIRACLES on PUMPKINS, like Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother could!
PS THIS post is BASED on a TRUE story! 😉
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
