He is ready for some freedom and I am ready for a little too. When his brother was that age and in an intensive it was only for a half day. It's a lot of work for a guy his age...which is rapidly approaching 9. As he keeps reminding me. Where do the years go?
Roo has two weeks left to dance. This is a blessing for him because last year four weeks seemed just too short. He is in his comfort zone and I am getting used to dropping him off and leaving him. It is harder on me than him, I know. (And calling me overly protective is a compliment, and I thank you for it.) I think five will be perfect. I know as he gets older we will be looking at some six week sessions, possibly longer.
I am grateful for a husband who has not complained about my
The whole summer intensive experience has been an adventure. Nothing has gone as planned (my plans) from the classes and structure that we've been used to in the past, to the events and incidents that have changed the plans for my days. But I've gotten to have lunch with friends, paint, visit a museum with another friend, move books, have a chance to help out at the studio with some housekeeping duties (it's always more fun to work on someone else's stuff!), paint, move books, do some shopping alone, and paint. Do you see a theme there???
One out-of-the-blue, unplanned, last minute incident was the offer of some tickets for the boys and I to attend a show we had really wanted to see, but just didn't have the funds to make possible. We got to see some choreography from one of our favorite choreographers and some of our favorite dancers--a couple who have been gone for a year now and who returned for this event. Of course this was on a week night, so we flew home, changed quickly, ate in the car, got home waaaaaaay too late, and were totally tired the next day--but oooohhhh it was worth it. It was intense, exciting and phenomenal.
Sadly my computer time was severely limited and I've not been a good visitor. Hopefully after next week I will be home a little more and have the paint chaos under control. I'm grateful for the little time I have been able to sneak in and grateful for everyone's patience with me as I catch up.
I'm grateful the LORD has provided such a full life to keep me never bored and always learning.
I'm grateful for Christine at Brady's Bunch who started Grains of Gratitude.
