One thing is certain...

This is my second year to start a new job at a new school. I am totally thrilled to have this job, and I love it already, but the start of the year is a bit overwhelming. I tried to get totally caught up on "home" things before it started, but I didn't quite accomplish that. Most of it will keep.

I have another day to work registration, which is an onslaught of strangers speaking in a foreign language. Literally. And I have no translator today. I know I can do it, I know I can. I'll just keep smiling. And say the words I know.

My darling daughter has just appeared out of the darkness of the hallway and kitchen with her quiet walk, and appeared next to me, fuzzy headed and warm skinned from bed, a stuffed animal under each arm, to inform me that she can't sleep. "Oh!" I say "Well, good news. It's morning."
Then her delightful chuckle and toothless smile is my reward.

She wants to know if we lived in the country, would a rooster wake us up this early.

This day is going to be alright.

Please let Emma know that her smile lights up any room she enters. She is adorable, precious and loved.

Thanks again for sharing,
