We have had a really great morning. I always forget how much more independent that my after-schoolers can be. And it helps that they haven't all seen each other in awhile so they are playing well and cooperating.
We took Ethan and Kara to pre-school, and because it wasn't raining, we walked over. It's 8 degrees outside and the snow is still piled high but it was nice to get out and get some fresh air.
Pretty Girl loves being the oldest and had no problem with being the leader. She had a runaway at this point but as soon as she called Shay to come back, she did.
They were all so good. Even on the busy road......you could tell that they haven't done it in awhile but the were all such good listeners.
And this is just to show you how messy that my street that I live on is. It was pretty mucky and slushy yesterday and I am sure it will take a few more days before it will be clear again. This is soooo much better than it has been for almost a week.
I am a wife, a mother, a friend. I own and operate my own family business, a licensed daycare in my home. I often say that I don't really work, which I don't, I play. Rod Black once said that if you choose a career you love, then you never have to work a day in your life. I know that I have done that. Children fascinate me, they have very intriguing behaviours and although I often think I need to evolve past the age of 5, I keep coming back to take care of all the little children. They are the lights of my life, and they help to make my life complete.
