Monday

It’s Monday morning. And I’m very thankful I was able to wake up this morning, fight with my son to get dressed, eat breakfast and bring him to school. It’s been a week since my last post. I was very busy last week and while I was starting to get stressed with it all, I now wouldn’t change it for anything.

Last week I help the PTC with Santa’s Secret Workshop. I was at the school everyday 8-3. Some days earlier and some days later. I was starting to stress because I have shopping to do and gifts to wrap and cookies to bake for cookie swap. But after Fridays events I’m so happy I was able to spend the week at my child’s school. I can’t fathom how some one can look into a child’s eyes and make the decision that man did. I had spent the whole week looking into the smiling faces of my son’s school mates. I have met all the teachers at his school. Seen them in their classrooms. Watched them with the students. I can’t imagine what the parents, family friends and town of Newtown are going thru. My son and I wore green today to remember. He’s only 5 and doesn’t quite understand. But my child is in kindergarten and his teacher is a close friend and many of my other friends are teachers and have children under 10. And as I sit here at the school, in Santa’s Secret Workshop, while I wait for the music program to be over and parents come shop with their kids. I am very thankful that I am here, my son is here and all the teachers and students are here.

What A Day

What a day! Book Fair all week at school and I was there all day!

No time for crafting today. I volunteered at the school Book Fair this morning and ended up staying all day. It was a little hectic but a lot of fun helping the kids. Pre K and Kindergarten weren’t too hard. We were able to help them write down title and prices but those 1st and 2nd graders are definitely more independent. All were a little loud and rowdy, but who wouldn’t be getting to try and narrow down 100 books to just 5! Seeing their selections and hearing why they like the books was wonderful.
I was ready to come home at the end of the day. I was a little tired. I feel like I had 1000 conversations today and was pulled in 1001 directions but it was worth it to see the happy little faces!

And to top off my day, I came home to a wonderful smelling home. I love my crock pot! I knew I would not be in the mood to cook tonight so I threw some ingredients into it and now all I have to do is cook some pasta and dinner is ready. Recipe for the night is Slow Cooker Rustic Italian Chicken
When I opened an email from Pillsbury yesterday and saw the picture I knew I had to try this recipe. I’ll let y’all know what it’s like tomorrow. Now I think I’ll try to finish some projects before supper time. Hope y’all have a great night
