Moments

I am working on purposefulness in everyday life. Work, home, life – the day just goes.

Today I got to spend the morning at N’s school for the valentines day party. I loved every minute of it. I loved doing the crafts. I loved talking with his friend’s. I love how his teacher is so thoughtful and driven and committed to the kids. I loved loved loved that he was so happy that I was there with him and how he held my hand and hugged me so many times. N’s heart is so joyful and big but fragile – what a kid.

Happy Valentines Day!

In the classroom

We got to go into N’s classroom last might – it was great, he worked so diligently, and he was so proud.
