Joining up with LeeAnna over at Not Afraid of Color to talk about the things I like again. It’s fun to focus on the positive!
I’ve been a bit on the go since the month started so it’s nice to take a minute to put up another blog post.
Where’d I go?
On A Road Trip!
Last Friday, I took a road trip with my high school senior to check out Mizzou! (The University of Missouri, Columbia) I liked going on a road trip with my son. It was fun.
And sometimes scary, like when we were ready to leave and couldn’t find the car. GPS for finding cars? Is that a thing? It needs to be! Can’t say I like parking garages.
Though I’m not ready for him to leave and go off to college, should he choose to go there, I would feel okay with it. If he does choose to go there, I’ll be accepting donations! Actually, I might need to accept them anyway. Senior year is expensive. YIKES!
Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Off To Work I Go
Good thing I also like my job. I actually love it. My plan is to some day move from being a substitute to teaching full-time at the Montessori preschool. If you want to spend your days with some of the kindest, most compassionate, funny, loving, and wisest people, go hang out with a bunch of preschool kids! Happens to be a great remedy for living with teenagers as well. It’s been a full-time week for me and I’m tired (And it’s only Wednesday as I’m doing my post early!) but it’s a good tired.
Speaking of preschool, sometimes I bring the inspiration home. Read a story called Pumpkin Jack to a group on Tuesday afternoon. Gave me a great idea about what to do with our starting to rot pumpkin…plopped it down in the garden. Maybe a pumpkin vine in the spring?
Outdoor time is always a good thing! Chilly this afternoon but I spent that last glimmer of daylight, cleaning out my car and walking around the yard a bit. Noticing how the oak tree still had quite a few leaves left. Not many trees with the leaves left but those oak leaves are still there.
Cutting it a bit short tonight, I like sleep and I need some because the animal man is coming to school tomorrow! Can’t wait to see what animals he’s bringing to share with the kids. Did I mention I love my job?
