Celebrate with Ruth Ayres at Discover, Play, Build each week. No matter what the week before brings, to reflect upon it and to celebrate those special things is satisfying. Thanks to Ruth, we're learning to find that there is much to appreciate every.single.week.
Yesterday, I hosted Poetry Friday, and one of the bloggers shared a poem by William Stafford. I'm going to share it again today because it speaks to our celebrations so aptly.
It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.
Or sunshine, love, salvation.
It could you know. That's why we wake
and look out--no guarantees
in this life.

- Teaching a lesson in a class of older students, fun to work with them again!
- Helping in my granddaughter's class, working with a small group helping to prepare some pages for their portfolio conferences.
- Learning the different ways that I work with the oldest and the youngest, but also what is the same.
- I won two books recently! Considering how much I purchased at our recent book fair, it was lovely to receive two books free!
- I post lots of sunset pictures on Facebook, and I love sharing them, but this week I took a picture also because I was trying to capture a view of the mountains when I walk one way around my neighborhood. This is well before sunset, but I caught it just right, and love the pic. If you look carefully, you can see the mountains peeking up far away.
- Of course, Halloween. At my school, and at most of yours I imagine, this is a most exciting holiday, wish we could bottle the energy! We dress up, we parade, parents dress up to join us too, and then we party. While most of the adults are pretty tired at the end, it truly is fun. The best part this year was seeing Granddaughter Ingrid in her class. What a joy!
- And I love seeing the trick or treaters come by, little to big--always fun to see and compliment. The little ones smile, but it's also great to see the older ones like hearing how good they look too.
I can only show a picture of her at home, because the ones I have
from school have other classmates, and I don't have permission
to share their pictures.
