Siblings Fill Each Other's Bucket at St. Mary's

We started learning about the invisible bucket the very 1st day of school. Toward the end of the 1st week, one of my little girls came up to me with a Bucket Filler note. She asked me if I could give it to her sibling's teacher. The note was thanking her Pre-K sibling for being brave and not crying on the first days of school, telling her sibling that she had filled the 3rd grader's bucket. Then I thought back to when I had this same 3rd grader's older sibling in my class 3-4 years ago. I could distinctly remember this little Pre-K child always wailing loudly as she walked down the hall. One day the Pre-K student was allowed to stop by the 3rd grade room to give her older sibling a hug or say hi. From that day forward there was no more crying. So our invisible bucket filling is indeed stretching beyond the boundaries of our classrooms.
