Things have been ridiculously busy lately.  Consequently, I needed to slow down to remember some of my favorite things from the past week:

10. “Clifford the Big Red Dog”  provided a much-needed break from all the tween Disney shows.

9. Our hairdresser made my daughter’s summer by giving her a hot pink feather for her hair.

8. I enjoyed listening to my iTunes while I set up my classroom.

7. It’s wonderful to have crisp, clean sheets on the bed after a long day.

6. Attending “Meet the Teacher” at Stinkerbell’s school assured me she will be in good hands this year.
