God is great. God is good. So I wrote my first grant proposal several months ago and am lucky enough to be the recipient of the Love of Learning summer program grant from the Simple Gifts fund in Sampson County. Sweet lady dropped the check off today and we took a photo with all our kids going to Costa Rica. It was a $3,000 grant with a $1,000 stipend for the teacher. Since my trip is free through Explorica, we will give the $1,000 to another teacher going and then the rest is split five ways giving $600 to each student. That is almost a third of the cost of the trip for each kid, and I am so glad. Happy to be making dreams come true and to be in a county where people love to literally, give money away to teachers TO make dreams come true. Some day I want to be rich so I can give money away too. There are some great people out there.
