Celebrating this Week {9-05-15}

Thank you, Ruth Ayres, for offering this space every week for celebration.
As I was considering my celebrations for the week, I was drawn to look at the pictures on my phone.  I seem to capture my celebrations to hold them forever in pictures.

Here's what I found this week:
My 16 year old daughter still gets out the sidewalk chalk to add some unexpected color to life.
These three stopped me as I was on my way out the door on the first day of school to be sure that I snapped their yearly photo.  Surprising...for a bunch of teenagers!
Hannah (our exchange student from Germany) and Kara are becoming very good friends.  They even sometimes dress alike!
I love this picture I took of the girls as they rode X-Flight at Great America last weekend.
Having a tremendous fear of rollercoasters, I celebrate that my daughter does not share in this trait.
I just love this little planter I put together to put near my desk at school.  
The little birdhouse tops it all off.  Every time I look at it, I feel peace and happiness.

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. Oh, so sweet that your children still honor your first day of school picture habit. They are adorable.

  2. I love celebrations in pictures!!! Great first day of school picture!!!! :)

  3. Love them all, Jennifer, and that you take the time for making something for you in the classroom. I know that students will like it too, but if it gives you especial pleasure, that's great.

  4. I frequently scroll through my pics to remind myself about the things I want to celebrate. Love the first day pic, the wild ride pic, and your peaceful planter. And your decorated driveway - wonderful!
