Celebrate! Week of August 16th

Discover. Play. Build.

I'm linking with Ruth Ayres, and her weekly link up.  Read More about that here.

A quick celebration before the day starts.  

1.  The prospect of efficiency.  I just spent two days being trained in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  It was a fresh start that reminds me that I'm better with my time than I think I am, and it allowed me to reflect on what can improve.  

2.  School started!  The classroom physical space.  The new colleagues.  One of the things I love most about education is the ability to start fresh each year.  The anticipation.  

3.  I continue to celebrate my family and little people.  This week after spending a day at school so mom (that's me) could get her school on, we headed out to buy the newest Origami Yoda book.  As I pull into Barnes and Noble(it was close to school) my youngest yells out, "Hey!  Is this our independent book store?!?!?"  Needless to say, we u-turned it out of the parking lot and headed to the local book shop.  I celebrate that leaning into my community didn't go unnoticed this summer and made a difference.  We had a great conversation about how if we keep shopping at this local store, it will get huge!  :)

What are you celebrating this week?



  1. I so wish we and an independent books store close by...actually I would settle for any bookstore! Celebrating anticipation is the best! Have a great school year.

  2. I love that your little one is conscious of the joys of supporting the local bookstore. That is awesome. This time of year is so full of energy and anticipation. Have a great start to your school year!

  3. I wish I had an independent bookstore near me or any bookstore. Sigh! Congrats on returning to school!!! There's nothing like starting fresh each year!

  4. LOVED your youngest's comment - and your U-turn response!

  5. Ha - love the indie book store story. :-) I love the "ability to start fresh each year" too!!
