We had the joy of hosting our 15th Annual Geyling Family Teacher Appreciation Dinner tonight and what a fun evening it was! We had our fill of Rolf’s yummy BBQ tri-tip, chicken and shrimp perfectly paired with my veggie rice and trio of salads topped off with blueberry cobbler crisp & ice cream for dessert!!! Tonight we hosted Max’s leadership class teacher and the teacher for whom he TA’s, the couple who staff FCA at DPHS and Rudy’s general ed teacher, nurse and 6 of his special ed teachers along with spouses and a couple of kids! There were 24 of us in all! We’ve come a long way since our very first teacher dinner with our solo guest – Wilson’s Kindergarten teacher. Ha Ha
This dinner has become a favorite spring event for our family and it was fun to see Rudy anticipate having his teachers over! He talked about it all last week and was so excited as guests arrived tonight that he needed to sit down for a bit to get some extra oxygen! We are so grateful for the many ways our kids are invested in each day at school…from their teachers & coaches to the school administrators & staff and tonight was another great reminder of how very rich we are in community and friendship!
Thank you, dear educators, for helping to shape our kids into lifelong learners,,,and becoming friends to our family along the way!
