How Patient Are You?

I am in charge of lunch duty for our Pre-K 3 class.  With little hands and fingers, much help is needed.  Parents pack the children's lunch but it still needs to be opened and straws inserted into juice boxes.  I hear choruses of Miss Debbie from the whole group of children at once.  Each one needs help and ...they want that help NOW!

I've had to stop at times and ask them "How many Miss Debbie's are there?".  They laugh and shout ONE Miss Debbie!  So I ask them to raise a quiet hand.  I tell them they need to learn to be patient.  I will help each one of them as soon as possible.  But patience is not something 3 and 4 year olds typically demonstrate.

Still Counting My Blessings

Life can become busy at times.  And no, I've not been hiding.  I've been moving ...still.

There are only two weeks left in the school year so it's a very busy time.  I've missed blogging and visiting my blogging friends.

But there have been many blessings to share.

My niece Kristin and her husband had a baby girl named Kenzie.  She is my great niece and she's adorable.

Have I mentioned that I love babies?  I can't wait to hold her.  These are the times when I wish I didn't live so far away.

My Aunt Ruth celebrated her 75th birthday on Saturday.  My Uncle Bob bought me a plane ticket to come and visit her in June.  That was her birthday gift and she told me how excited she was when she opened her card.  It's so nice to feel loved.  I am looking forward to three days in California with my aunt.  And she's not far from Santa Monica, which is one of my favorite places. :)

I hope to be back blogging as I already finished many end of year photo books.  I love taking photographs and it comes in handy when creating gifts.  But I couldn't believe how many photos I've taken this year and I wanted to choose the best.

I continue to count my every day blessings as I link up with Ann of A Holy Experience for Multitudes on Mondays.
