Celebrate This Week 3.29.14
It's always good to end the week on a positive note. Sometimes we concentrate on the negatives. We have a choice. Choose positive. Choose to celebrate. I will be joining Ruth Ayres and her weekly link-up, Celebrate This Week. Check out all the other celebrations HERE
It's always hard coming off a week of vacation. No matter how much I love what I do, I do love being home too! Of course it helps having so much time to do that other thing I love - read!
So here are some Spring Break Celebrations:
Celebration #1 - Time to read. We didn't go anywhere (boo) and the weather was not conducive to spending time outside (boo again) so there was lots of reading time! See my Monday IMWAYR post!
Celebration #2 - Good swim week. My daughter was back to a regular routine of swimming this week and the time off seemed to help. She worked really hard this week and seemed to have some speedier times.
Celebration #3 - Good dental visit this week. I really don't like going to the dentist, so I'll celebrate 6 more months before I have to go again! And we're still not being sent to the orthodontist, I'll take the extra time!
Celebration #4 - I got my daughter all signed up for her Classification meet in Colorado Springs this summer. She will be classified as a disabled swimmer which will help her at home so she won't be DQed for things she physically has no control over with her leg. She will also be able to swim in paralympic events after this. The coolest part is she'll be swimming at the US Olympic Training Plaza. So cool.
Celebration #5 - My daughter and I started reading RJ Palacio's Wonder over break. I'm reading it to her so we can stop and discuss it. It's interesting listening to her thoughts since she's had similar experiences to Auggie. She talked about how she hates that everyone always stares at her shoe lift and she does the same thing as Auggie - she's aware but she keeps walking.
Celebration #6 - This might have been the best comment from my daughter this week. We participated in #SharpSchu book club this past Tuesday evening. We both read the book Harriet the Spy and my daughter was very excited to participate in her first Twitter chat. She loved typing her responses and she got a huge kick out of people favoriting her comments. She felt so popular! But her best comment was when she said, "I loved talking to other people about the book. It was better than just talking to you about it." Thanks......
Have a great week!
