It's the Little Things
Clare brought home her 1st grade journal during the last week of school. Each Monday during the school year she wrote about what she did over the weekend. The first few entries were a bit rough to read, but as the year progressed her writing did as well. I noticed a constant theme in her journal throughout the whole school year. It was the simplest things that she often chose to write about. (Granted our weekends never amount to much!) A trip to the park, drinking root beer, flying a toy airplane, reading... It was so sweet to see the joy she sees in the little things. And a good reminder to me to stop and enjoy the simple joys life so often brings.
