oh for goodness sake

Now that I've taken down the man, I'm ready to hip hop over into a happier place, where bunnies frolic. Or at least I'm ready to point out a few things this week that have made my wee little cup runneth over:

  1. The elderly gentleman, wearing a dapper hat and mossy green sweater, carrying a humongous bouquet out of Trader Joe's. Wonder who he gave them to...
  2. Lexi's first attempt at the javelin, which was less than stellar. Yet, she chuckled about it. What a gift it is, to laugh at yourself when you try something new.
  3. Blogs. Bloggers. Don't like the word itself - it's dopey - but knowing this community will be here no matter where I go makes me feel brave and adventurous. (You will be here, right? I'm fragile.)
  4. Standing in the 'is it November?' rain this morning, waiting for the library to open with some pudgy little preschoolers in raincoats and their proud Grandmas. (Does that pink and brown number come in my size, half-pint?)
  5. Meeting Greg at a locally owned pizza joint last night, after the track meet. Tired. Soaked. HUNGRY. (I had to shake Zack off my arm. Methinks he thought it was a breadstick.) Happy.

What about you? How's your school's ending, schedule-crunching, summer's almost here soul? Inquiring minds want to know.

I kind of miss when summer used to mean something to me

What a lovely post...such a joy finding the positives in life and bringing them into focus like that.

Why is it that a genteman with flowers always jolts the heart? It never fails.

There is pretty much nothing sweeter than an old guy with a hat and flowers.

But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me too.

(Uh, "Friends" theme song.)

Having my first in school, my husband a 7th grade teacher and me, watching teachers kids, you betcha I'm counting down the hours until the end of the year. But I know the next time I blink, school will be starting up again.

WE ARE HERE! WE ARE HERE! (Horton Hears A Who)

Anyhoo. Very nice, appreciating the good stuff. I used to do that, before I became a bitter end-of-school-year-can't-get-here-soon-enough teacher.

I think I might bring my class flowers. And show movies for the last few days...

We will be here. Absolutely. You can't get rid of us that easily!

The man with flowers...pitter pat, pitter pat.
