Three beautiful things at the end of a very long and busy day:
1. My friend Nerine (soon to be Dylan's kindergarten teacher!) took me for a pumpkin spice latte and biscotti after school today. It was the perfect treat for a rainy start to the school year.
2. In the grocery store parking lot, a woman walked up to me just as I was about to get in the van. "I saw your pink ribbon," she said. "Are you running for the cure? I'd like to give you some money." And just like that, she handed me a $20 bill. I love that there are still people out there who are so kind and generous, and trusting.
3. Sawyer went to playschool today dressed in his yellow raincoat, Mind the Gap ball-cap and gumboots, and carrying his bright red London bus backpack. Oh, and he insisted on sunglasses, too. He was a sight to behold, and oh so proud of himself. I love that little boy so much.
4. And this one, too! (aren't they cute in their London transport hats?)
It's getting late and I'm getting sleepy, so I'm off to bed. Lots to do tomorrow on my day off! I've got Thursday's soup to prep, a stack of photocopying to do, two adorable boys to entertain (we're starting our England scrapbooks!), some grade 1 lessons to plan, and a 3-hour preschool meeting to help run. Oh, and I'd really like to write some letters to a few of you, put together a blog post of lovely London parks, and start working on my guest post for the beautiful bride-to-be Kim (she's getting married next week in a fabulous picnic wedding and then flying to Thailand to ride an elephant! how amazing is that?) Whew, anyway... I'd really better get to bed.
