Dear Friends, Every week Ruth Ayres provides a space at http://www.ruthayreswrites.com/ to link up and celebrate! Join in and Celebrate with us.
Ahem. Once again, I'm blowing the dust off the blog, and reaching out to celebrate. As I was typing this part, I was talking to myself like this: "Ugh. You didn't blog enough this summer. You didn't connect enough this summer." Always a reflection as we head into August and gear up for a school-year schedule.
Isn't it so easy to feel like we didn't do Enough?
So I'm celebrating what I accomplished this summer. It was Enough. And I'm working on settling back into a routine involving more writing and connecting.
We survived the great Graduate School Work of 2015. I still maintain my belief if you accomplish grad school and care for Any people, tiny or otherwise, you get a boost in your GPA.
I'm setting up a new classroom. One that hasn't been occupied fully for at least 2 years. Lots of treasures to sort through and the time needed to make the space my own. I'm going to try and post a video later for my friends to see if you are interested in this change.
Running 30 miles a week. I celebrate the health that is required to do that! I'm still debating if racing is necessary; or if the miles are enough.
Family and Friends. We spent so much time eating lunches, driving to farms, lingering over coffee/tea/beer, it was simply glorious.
We organized and held a 5K. It was small, only about 60 participants. But my 10 year old had this vision, and I adore a Church Community that worked together to make it happen. We collected over 260 pairs of socks for our 1st Annual Sock Scamper. Another post will be coming on this soon!
I celebrate that the blogging community is flexible and awesome! I'm looking forward to reconnecting with you!
