I have many things to celebrate this week. It has been a week of wonderful new beginnings.
I celebrate my new students. I have 24 this year and while there is a huge range between them, they are eager to learn.
I celebrate returning to work and being with friends. I am thankful I have a place to go every day, work with people I enjoy, and spend each day doing something I love.
I celebrate routines. The beginning of the year is a crazy time. I am looking forward to settling into a familiar routine where I don't have to look at my schedule every 10 minutes to know what I'm supposed to be doing.
I celebrate independence. Last night, my son drove himself to Boy Scout camp which is about 90 minutes away. This is the farthest we've ever let him drive by himself. (He got his license in May.) He arrived safely, and even remembered to text his worrying mom to let her know.
I celebrate the bounty of my garden. The tomatoes are ready -- really ready. I will spend some time tomorrow figuring out how I am going to use all of them. I see a huge pot of chili and spaghetti sauce in our future...
