Celebrate This Week! 9.13.14
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
Ever since school started, it has been harder and harder to get everything in - reading, writing, posting.... They have taken a back seat to everything else that needs to get done. Today I'm taking some time to write some quick celebrations down.
Celebration #1: Family weddings! My brother got married last weekend to a wonderful person. We love Kristi, and are thrilled to have her in our family. Their wedding took place in Indianapolis which is about 3-4 hours away from most of our family. I was thrilled to find out that all of my aunts and uncles and 15 out of 19 cousins would be present! It was a fantastic weekend. So much fun and laughter. Dancing and singing. It was a day to celebrate!
Celebration #2: I meet with 3 intervention groups per day. I've been working with them in one of our intervention rooms and we happened to enhance our classroom library in that room this year. Then by chance, we inherited a fantastic book stand. I've been spotlighting some books and I have kids who beg to take home extra books. Fly Guy, Elephant & Piggie, and the Pigeon series have been flying off the shelves! Kids have told me they've read them or they've taken turn reading them with parents.
Celebration #3: I'm ironically celebrating my daughter's allergies. They've been horrible this week! Runny nose, barking cough. Her sleep has been affected and she's been so tired. As a result, she stayed home tonight from swim practice. While that doesn't sound good, it's allowed us to have a slow, easy night at home. I'm reading and writing.
Celebration #4: Get your cowboy boots and hat out tonight! I'm going to see Garth Brooks! It's been a looooong time since he's performed in Chicago and I'm very excited to see his show tonight. I've heard great things and can't wait to kick up my heels :)
Hope you've had moment to celebrate this week!
