Oh Happy Day! It has been a vvvveeeerrrryyyy long week and I am oh so happy to have woken up to find it Friday! Extra bonus points for the fresh snowfall last night that is clinging to every surface . . . . simply beautiful!
1. We have been experiencing a very mild winter this season, so I am tickled glittery pink when the snow falls. I love living in the Midwest where we have seasons full of everything they have to offer. I have been a little disappointed in the 'lack of action' this winter has presented, so waking up to a day bright and snow-filled has made me a very content Iowan.
2. Louise and I (I am Thelma) have a mutual friend who needs someone to watch her sleeping kiddos for a couple of hours, once a week. Just a situation where one parent has to head to work while the other is still AT work. Louise and I usually offer up our two eldest daughters to go and 'babysit'. The two girlies like to chit-chat on the couch and keep an ear out for any kiddos who wake up and need a glass of water or such. Well, this week Louise worked it out so she and I could take over the babysitting . . . . US sitting on the couch, chit-chatting for an hour and a half or so. B-l-i-s-s-f-u-l. How wonderful to get a chance to reconnect and talk about nothing in particular. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.
THIS morning I was sitting beside Ellie at the kitchen table while she worked on her math, Teaching Textbooks, on the laptop. I was busy drinking my coffee and reading news on my iPad when she squealed in delight that she had finished another unit. This means 'Bonus Round'! I quickly turned the camcorder function on and turned the iPad ever-so-sneakily in her direction.
This girl's excitement is enviable. Enjoyable. Immense. Funny. Fabulous. and of course, AWSCHUM.
My favorite part is at the end when she mimics the computer, throws her hands in the air, and declares, "I am officially Amazing!!!!!" Yes, yes you are, my sweet.
Have a great weekend!!!!
