Thankful 30-#24, #25, #26

Jakson's Preschool Teacher

Miss Michelle is a saint. Jak screamed for the entire 2 1/2 hours he spent at preschool the first four or five times. Once that ended, he started hitting kids, and when that stage was over, he went to the current one- falling apart every time I drop him off.
Through it all, Miss Michelle has rolled with the punches. When he screamed, she created a "crying room" just for him. When he hit, she punished appropriately. Now she meets us at the entrance and finds a way to distract him in order to curtail the drama. And she still seems to like him!!
What a blessing.

Having Family Close

We spent today with family. Lots of family. It was wonderful. Not to mention the fantastic food that was served. I love that my kids are getting to know their aunts and uncles. (And I love not making Thanksgiving dinner).

Good booksI am currently reading The Second Mrs.Giaconda, by E. L. Konigsburg. What an entertaining escape and a great stress reliever. I would love to be able to take a vacation, but sitting down with a good book is the second best thing.
