yesterday was one of those days, friends.
i foolishly thought i could get some cyber-monday shopping done with my cup of coffee and pj's before school started. i whipped through amazon like a pro and announced school should begin- only 40 minutes behind our usual schedule.
and then things began to fall apart.
right around the same time that i realized i had taught samuel an entire lesson from last year's math curriculum, jason called me and asked me if i had meant to ship my entire amazon order to my parents house in texas.
no. i had not meant to do either of those things.
you can imagine the gradual slow decline that followed in the hours to come. so that- by about 7pm- i declared the day over. ready to try again. let's start over.
so i'm here today to perform a little exercise. some pictures-- reminders-- of all the good we've had of late.
oh how i love thanksgiving.
and walk in the woods
the start of a new season.
december holds so much potential. i'm hoping to hold it all loosely. (those expectations get me in trouble every time). to anticipate joyfully and have eyes open to see what is right in front of me.
whatever the days may hold.
