I Celebrate This Week – 4.4.15



It’s the end of another week.  Looking back, there is a so much to celebrate.

I celebrate this week.  This week ended the 8th Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge.  This was my first March participating in the challenge.  I celebrate that I wrote every day in March!  All. 31. days!

I celebrate this week.  I am back to school after a week of relaxation, reflection, and time away.  I missed my readers, writers, and thinkers!  I celebrate that we are back to the literacy routine in our classroom!

I celebrate this week.  After weeks of stress and struggle, B and E have Ice Show solo costumes (always my biggest challenge!). I celebrate that their dresses are ready for a weekend full of performances!

I celebrate this week.  ACT scores arrived in the mail this week for B.  This means that going to college and the possibility of leaving home will come sooner than we think. I celebrate that she is excited about continuing her learning journey!

I celebrate this week.  This has been a week of much debate and deliberation at our house.  Our E has gone on her first “date” as she calls it.  Her dad and I call it a group gathering at the movies.  I celebrate that we all survived!

This week is over, but the celebrations remain and will be joined by the celebrations of another week yet to come.
