We were also able to share in the joyous occasion of the baptism of my friend Stephanie's baby, Spencer. Afterward, we went to the pool party for the baptism and her daughter, Lauren's birthday. Regina was able to meet several of my friends here and she commented how she REALLY liked them all. She told me how blessed I was to have women like that as friends. I knew that, but it's always good to be reminded of God's blessings!
It was a busy week, getting ready for the visit and trying to cram as much in as possible before school started yesterday. And, oh, yeah, E started first grade--home school-style--yesterday. She really enjoyed it and I'm so glad the school year started on such a happy note! It is so nice to get so much done one-on-one. I can tell if she's ready to move on or needs to review and adjust accordingly.
As part of a better schedule for our family, I'm trying to restrict and limit my computer time. So, I'm taking a little Facebook break. It may only last a few days, but hopefully it will help me check-in less often. The problem is the e-mail alerts, but I hate to disable them completely. Does it count if I read the alert, but don't go to the Facebook link?!
