Henry David Thoreau
That my friends sums up a weekend of wonder. Oh my stars...
Every year, I try to take a class or two for my teaching craft. To inspire, jump start, learn something new, a way to keep those fires going. The class was Friday evening and all day Saturday. It was a Make It/Take It class. A few hours where I could fabulatize, color, glue, and fancify stuff to use in my classroom. While working all weekend is not ideal, the weather on Saturday was dismal, dreary, and wet.
The school was decorating for their high school prom with an Old Hollywood Glam theme, complete with the red carpet and marquee lights. My new friends and I took a walk and I did my best Hollywood pose on the red carpet.
Then the gray skies parted, bursting with rays of sunshine all around. What a day to behold, and we soaked up the sunshine.
Bike rides, walks in the woods. My little girl wants to walk instead of being in the wagon. She pulled the wagon a ways, then we played Stop and Go. She never tires until it's time for bed.
She's large and in charge!
As the sun began to set and our walk in the woods came to an end, I launched myself on the weekend wave and inhaled the moments.
