We had conferences this past week and then 1/2 day of in-service on Friday. It was a very busy week and I found myself tired and short on patience most evenings. My brother shared the above image with me. It made me smile and made me remember to look for the little things in life when things are super crazy. To take time to smile and enjoy the chaos.
Then, Mother Nature blessed me with an amazing sun rise. I'm so thankful for the view I have from my classroom window.
Finally, with all that was going on this week, I watched Sister and Brother transform a box into a train which soon became a ferry boat and then a house and finally a couch. I love watching their imaginations and I was remind of the importance of play. As an adult, the pressures to work, pay bills, take care of the house - can leave one feeling like they don't have much time for anything else OR we are simply too tired for anything else. I've been reminded (again) this week to take time to play. I hope you all can find an activity or two to simply enjoy this weekend.
