Praise you with the dance

Well, she finally did it. The ladybug has been in this little choir for some time now, and this was the first time she actually sang during the service. Not only did she sing, she did the motions. Amazing. Ah- maze-ing!!!
I love Sundays - have I said it before ? We have already been to church, it is a wonderful day, the weather is great, and I cleaned house yesterday, so I don't have to do that lovely task today.
School is still great, home is still wonderful , and every one is happy. Life is good.
Hope you have a great week. Ours will be busy, but that is what makes it fun.

get into the groove

We are loving school around here. Ladybug is really getting into her class - she learns a Bible verse every week , along with the Pledge and the Lord's Prayer. She is amazing. The monkey is hanging in there, as well . He is not as vocal about loving school, but I have a feeling he likes it . A lot.
And as much as I hate to say it, I am still having a really great year. I don't know why it is , but this year I have so many really well-behaved students. What a difference it makes. All those prayers have finally been answered !
The weather has been just beautiful here, and that makes us all happy - now we just want to play outside as much as possible .
Hope you all have a wonderful week - be nice to someone!

September 1 is not my favorite day

Not long after we got back to the states with the monkey, my parents and I took him to Cleveland, to visit old friends. I think I took this photo outside our old church - Cleveland First United Methodist. What a happy time . Look how sweet and happy every one is! This is the way I remember my precious father. Gosh, I miss him. Eight years have seemed so long without him. I promise, I am not going to stay on this pity wagon - I just miss him today.
The monkey has mono - MONO. The husband says that the doctor told him that monkey was exposed to it 45 days ago - do you think he meant 4 to 5 days ago? I am not sure, but I do know that monkey cannot do any physical activities for a while, until the doctors say his spleen is back to the normal size. Poor baby - he is supposed to be checked out of school today, and go to the State game with Uncle Dale. I hope he is up to it.
Have a wonderful day - count your blessings. I read a quote the other day [ on pinterest - my new love] that said 'what if you woke up today with only the blessings you thanked God for last night?' it has certainly changed my prayers, I can tell you.
