Makeing Misteaks

I've just finished watching the slide show from our London Study Leave report. The pictures stirred-up so many memories and yes, much gratitude.

But, I must confess, I found myself distracted and frustrated with at least a half-dozen misspellings- many, if not most of them, common words. My second-grade teacher, Mrs. Kindred would be appalled!

I have all the usual excuses available to me: I was in a hurry, the technology was new to me, I though I had double-checked before pressing "OK,", where's spell-check when you really need it?!

Some lessons re-learned about making mistakes:

Be careful- we all make them.

Be humble- we all make them.

Be forgiving- we all make them.

  1. That is something that I am having to accept as well when I create the slides for Sunday mornings. Maybe we can create a "Spot the Mistakes" section in the bulletin for the kids...
