Isn't that what we all do? Move in a forward direction (well most of the time) and dodge obstacles that try to get in the way. I feel like the summer is slipping away. I would actually like to stop it from moving.
I got Nathan's letter from his kindergarten teacher yesterday. It is so real. I can't believe he is entering school. It is such an emotional time. I just want everyone to see the best in him because he is one fantastic kid. Sort of like I want everyone to do the same with me. I suppose every parent feels this way. Each day when I am teaching, I try to have on that parent hat too, hold onto those hopes, dreams and fears I am concerned with so that it gives me perspective. It is an exciting time and I will be happy when the initial transition is over.
We have put the smack down on Ella. She is so fiesty and strong. Really, I have quite a pip on my hands. I love that she is confident and sure of herself, but it needs limits. She has this habit of screaming really loudly when things do not go her way. It makes me nuts. She is now going to her room every time she does it. I hope she gets the message.
In the theme of moving and dodging, here is a new layout. I have been having so much fun with the August Nook kit. Something about using Sass that makes me want to be free and experiment a bit. It is good for the creative soul.
design team call over at the Nook is just about at the deadline. Be sure to apply...it is a great team and a great community!
Oh, and something cool. One of my layouts is up on the Lily Bee blog as a Friday favorite...made me smile!
Time to move off the computer and maybe dodge the list of chores that I have...
