CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS!
This is a weekly blog hop sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about those moments. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
Oh gosh, what am I celebrating?
1) Mother's Day! For the first time in...oooo....twenty some years, I was able to spend time with my own mother. We had a picnic at a roadside park, where the kids could splash around in a nice creek with tiny waterfalls. It was a lovely day.
2) School's out as of today! Which means summer madness can begin. Not sure how we're going to spend the next 3 months, but then I never do. Still, the days seem to fly by.
3) Wax museum! Well, not a real one. My son's class held a mock wax museum one evening this past week. The kids pulled a historical name out of a hat, did some research, placed it on a poster board, dressed up as their character and placed themselves as 'wax' figures in the school. Each received a paper button on the wall for 'visitors' to push, and they recited one famous phrase from their person. My son had tons of fun with it, since he got to be Queen Victoria. His phrase (which I don't believe is really from her although thought to be) "We are not amused."
And what about you? What happened this last week that put a smile on your face?
