Where dreaming moves closer to reality

She says she wants to be a teacher, and we encourage her by saying,
 "You'll never get a job."

To test her resolve, we suggested that that she help her brother through his homework last night: a task which typically exhausts us and makes him absolutely overwhelmed.

She never raised her voice.  He never cried.

And in just a few minutes, she convinced him that he did know how to do division - all by himself!

She's going to be a mighty fine teacher.
