the things that make me happy post

happy things:

  • the way Ben says “See you later tocodile.”
  • the 2.5 days of school left this year
  • 70 degree sunny days
  • a 3 day weekend
  • a very thoughtful brother in law who made Chris’s year last night (even if he says no)
  • finally having my classroom closets clean and rid of all the junk from my predecessor
  • a new camera lens
  • free manual labor in the form of 13 and 14 year old ‘helpers’ 😉
  • being on the cusp of summer break but not quite there yet with all the possibilities of time yet to be spent
  • the way Ben says “Good job, mama, good job” when I do the most inconsequential things
  • Evey’s unique and quite trendy fashion sense
  • Gator rides, fishing, sunburns, ladder-ball, paddle boats, bonfires and huge dinners that have me spending more quality and fun time with family in the last 3 months than I’ve done in the last 3 years
  • naps
  • my ever more eclectic and growing playlist of Jen music
  • the great feeling of accomplishment that another closed up school year gives

Tell me what you think. I'd love to hear from you!!!
