Saturday Smiles

On Saturday I share a few things that have made me smile over the last week.

1) School Started!
My girls were gone at school all day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Peace and quiet reigned. And...

2) Abigail likes her new school!
Which is a miracle and thrill.  She has never really liked school, and we finally put her in the potential pool for one of the local charter schools which spends a majority of their time outside.  Her name got drawn out of the hat, and she was excited at first.  As the first day of school approached she started saying no, she didn't want to try a new school.  But she liked it!  And she wanted to go back.

3) I don't have to start work until next week!
I start tutoring next week on Tuesday, and I am thrilled to say that I'm enjoying the quiet at home while they are gone. Quiet and peace is an amazing gift.  I've gotten a surprising amount of work done without their constant presence.  I like my job.  I like getting paid.  But I also like accomplishing some much needed jobs. The job will come soon enough.

It is such a blessing when we feel our children are in a place that values their special strengths. Hope your daughter has found such a place, Becca!
