3. One thing that I was worried about when I started back to school in a new grade was my classroom library. I was going to be lacking some grade level books. I had hit a few yard sales and found several to add to my collection, but I had also mentioned my need to a few friends. These sweet friends of mine dug though their old books and brought me BAGS of books for my students to enjoy! Of course I am always looking to for more (I think teachers always are), but I am off to a fantastic start!
4. I have also been blessed lately in other small ways. Whether it be a surprise blockbuster gift card for a date night in after a long week of school, or a treat bag filled with homemade bake goods, or even coming home to a playroom covered with crayons and blocks knowing a little boy lives here and is healthy and strong, it feels so good to get a blessing.
