We live in this really great town. It's small enough, but not too small. Homecoming weekend at the university we both attended and Fall Ball at the high school means a parade over the weekend and a lot of family fun! Now that we are in our 5th year here, things that we do each year are starting to feel like traditions. I like that.
When the parents both work in schools, and the kids both go to school, parent-teacher conference time can be a bit stressful a couple of times a year. It's part of the job, but requires some careful planning and a lot of patience!
On days when it all starts to feel like a race, I have to sit myself down and remember what is important. On days when I feel so tired that I don't want to do anything, I just take it one task at a time. I pray. I breathe. I smile.
This life can be a lot, but I just repeat, "All good things". Really, every little issue that pops up can be made good. I just have to slow down and see it from the right direction.
