March 19th was Fathers Day here in Honduras. My class decorated baseball hats for their dads. They really went wild decorating them, and it made me laugh to know that its the love in the dads that will cause them to wear their hats. Some of my kids even wanted to paint the underside of the hat, which was so funny to me. "What happens when they sweat?" I asked them. "Won't the paint run down their face?" "Ohhhhhh, good point," they told me. They really are so funny. At the end of the day, one of the boys really touched my heart. He said, "Miss McNerney I know today is Father's Day so I just wanted to wish you a happy Mother's Day." I told him thank you but that I wasn't a mom yet. He told me, "Yeah, I know but you're like a mom to me."
