This Ninth Day of January Two Thousand and Seventeen

This morning my teenage daughter got herself out of bed and fed and off to school on her own, while I gave my first grader a ride to his new school.  He finally got into Montessori (there's a wait list.) After I dropped him off, I went to my neighborhood library and started a mural for the toddler room.  It's a big elm tree and I used three ladders and three colors to get it going today.  It's magnificent and I may paint trees in my own home after this.  The new Montessori school gives the kids each a 'job' at school and today my son's job was to do dishes.  He loved school so much that when he came home he wanted to show me how he can help.  This day is one for the books.

I've been following your blog since Ella was a baby, hard to believe she is now a teenager! But I am now retired and enjoying life and this coming May I will fly back to Rockford for my grand daughters high school graduation......time flies, haven't been back to Illinois in over 3 years Rockford now seems like a strange city since Arizona became my home 15 years ago. Peace and love to you and yours.

Arizona! Yes yes, Hello! I know - it's hard to believe all the things and all the years and how fast it's all gone. I'm glad you said hello. Rockford is getting kind of neat these days with little shops and art studios downtown. Peace and love to you :)
