Today's my last day of teaching - at our church, not here at home with the boys - so my time will free up considerably in the next few days. I do hope you've all been well!
Things have been seriously crazy here lately and I'm really looking forward to the long holiday weekend. I'm also looking forward to having time again for the simplest of things - looking over my calendar, catching up on emails, working (playing!) with my journal, and digging my way through my (now overflowing) reading basket. I'm itching to work on my file crate notebook, too - especially because I owe you all a post on that project!
And ... I miss posting, too. :)
But I just had to take a few minutes this morning, to pop in and say hello, and to thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes for Bookworm! He had a wonderful day, and truly enjoyed reading through all the birthday messages. As you can see above, we had a homemade cake per his request - his Nana's yellow cake with chocolate fudge frosting (his favorite!). I used a bag of "Peppermint Patty Pieces" as a happy, albeit humble, embellishment. (Btw, his big gift this year was this. He's having fun figuring it out!)
Well, I must be off for now ... it's back to the salt mines, lol! I have notes to type and print out, children to feed, and a bag to pack with books/props/and snacks. (Honestly this has been a terrific, if exhausting, experience - teaching a 7th grade religious education class - squeezing a whole curriculum in one week!)
So, please know I'm thinking of you all and appreciating every comment that gets left ... I will be catching up with you again just as soon as I can!
