At Boo’s school there is a painting of an American flag that has the following words written on it:
Here is the enormous piece that the students made that decorates one of the halls:
I love that.
I spent the last few days filming at Boo’s school….capturing the student life behind the walls:
I just enrolled Boo in 1st grade for next year at The Academy of PDCPC. She has been there since the age of two and I couldn’t imagine her anywhere else. She loves when Mr. LBB takes her early…..and loves to be the last one picked up. Now I enroll her in the after-school programs….she starts pottery next week with a local artisan.
I always share the things that I love on this site…..and so today I’m sharing Boo’s school since it’s such a big part of our life. I made the digital short to bring the school to life for those locally who might be looking for a good fit for their child. It’s faith-based but there are children of other religions there….and I love that it’s not exclusive. In Kindergarten this year Boo and her entire class learned all 50 states and capitals. It was pretty amazing. (Note: that meant that I had to learn them as well because I didn’t do so well the first time around in elementary school).
Visit The Academy of Palm Desert Community Presbyterian Church here…..and if you happen to see any typos let me know…..those would be MY typos!

The art piece by the students was inspired by a poem that was written on a wall in a concentration camp during WW2 by a Jewish prisoner:
“I believe in the sun even when it is not shining
And I believe in love, even when there’s no one there.
And I believe in God, even when he is silent.
I believe through any trial, there is always a way
But sometimes in this suffering and hopeless despair
My heart cries for shelter, to know someone’s there
But a voice rises within me, saying hold on my child, I’ll give you strength,
I’ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining
And I believe in love even when there’s no one there
But I believe in God even when he is silent
I believe through any trial there is always a way.
May there someday be sunshine
May there someday be happiness
May there someday be love
May there someday be peace….”
