first friday - top 5

you've heard of a snow-delay?
this blog had a "first week of school delay".

here's the belated top 5 from a busy week:
5.  getting back into routine.  the first day of school is like jumping into a pool of cold water, but a predictable schedule is not all bad.
4.  starting school with a 3-day week instead of 5.
3.  working at a joyful school with kind and helpful people.
2.  building a classroom of friends.
1.  celebrating a loved one's 81st birthday.

everyday beauties. 
i hope your weekend is filled with them.  


  1. I think it's so smart to start school with a shortened week. I wish Callum's school did that! His old school did and it was so helpful. Some of my friends who teach started with their first graders on Thursday and we had a front porch catch-up that night. A friend of hers had died the night before and she found much solace in her new class of kiddos. As she got up to head home, she said, "And hey! Tomorrow's Friday!"

    Cal's actually a little excited to start school. I almost can't believe it! Happy first week to you my dear!

  2. Sounds like a great way to start the school year. And working in a joyful supportive environment is so wonderful. Good luck settling back in. Much love xx
