OK - I'll jump into this one -

1. Alex (my 6 year old) actually practiced with his soccer team this week. (Last year he absolutely refused; it was too hot!)

2. The papers for our home equity loan were FINALLY ready to sign yesterday.

3. I have more seniority than 2 of the other special ed teachers at our school, so I will not have to leave when they close a class due to lack of students.

4. Bernard (my 8 year old) has not been overwhelmed with homework.

5. Both kids have teachers who I really like. My 1st grader has the teacher that my 2nd grader had last year. And my 2nd grader has the same teacher he had in K.

Oh, and a bonus one....

Cub Scouts is starting back up. I'm a den leader, and we have as much fun as the kids (maybe more) at our monthly leader meetings. I enjoy the adult conversation.

4. preparing to join the family to use our new outdoor fireplace for the first time and camp out in the yard...a nice way to end the Summer before

5. my oldest child, DS, starts Kindergarten with a really lovely teacher...she's a Christian and it's an inclusion classroom where DS will learn so much in the way of compassion, mentoring, etc. I keep hearing more and more about how great this class is, which is wonderful because I was concerned at first about the inclusion part...would DS get enough challenge, etc.? But now I'm convinced God knew exactly what He was doing! (Doesn't He always?)

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

In Him,

5. My beautiful children's enthusiasm for everything life has to offer and their constant asking about going to church!
