Kona Ice and Some Awesome Teachers

"Each Friday during the summer, the Kona Ice truck stops by my kid's preschool/daycare and the kids get to pick out a shaved ice treat of their choice.  My five and three year olds were so excited this morning because "TODAY IS KONA ICE DAY!"  Each kid's parent needs to bring in $2 for the Kona Ice treat.  I meant to stop and get change so I would have the $2 for each of my kids, but in the rush of the morning, I forgot.  I told the teachers I didn't have the $2 today and said I could run and get change and be back.  But both of the teachers immediately offered to pay for my kids Kona Ice so that I wouldn't have to make a second trip back to the preschool.  I was so impressed with how quickly and matter-of-fact they were about offering to pay for the Kona Ice themselves.  My wife and I are lucky that our kids have such wonderful, kind, and caring teachers each day.  They truly love going to school and their teachers are the reason why.  Today was just another example of why these teachers are amazing!"
