Celebrate Good Times, Come On! 8/16
Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week. Looking for celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with me.
It has been a week of beginnings and endings for my family.
Me - Last week was our first full week of school, and as a teacher, I walked new halls for the first time. I began teaching 6th grade ELA in a five year old school. I have much to learn, but it was a great first week not only learning the ropes of the new building and a new grade level, but also learning the differences between 4th and 6th graders. This experience should give me much to write about this year.
My Husband - Monday, my husband started a new job. He worked for a bank for 30 years, our entire life together. Banking, just like teaching, has gone through many changes, and this career change has been a breath of fresh air for him.
My Daughter - Megan, my daughter, begins her last semester in college. I remember the excitement and fear of knowing that I would soon be in the real world. She is beginning her last semester with the anticipation of beginning her adult life.
My Son - Ethan, my son, begins his last year in high school. So many emotions accompany this year. Enjoying each senior experience, yet knowing this year may be the last time he sees many of his classmates. Wanting to grow up, yet enjoying that care free life for one more year.
Many great celebrations for us this week and I am sure, throughout this entire year. It will be a busy time, but we must take the time to stop and celebrate those small things along the way.
Have a great week and may you find many celebrations in your lives along the way!
