Tell Me Something Good


I found another linky to join! Jennifer from Rowdy in First Grade is having a linky party, and I'm in!  My task is to say something good about school and something good at home.  This should be easy! 
 Something Good from School:  I know I mentioned the Gratitude Journals yesterday in my Five for Friday, (Click HERE.) and blogged about earlier in the week, (Click HERE.) but it's really going even better than I'd expected! We write in the Gratitude Journals daily.  They follow this format:  Today I am grateful for ________________ because...  It has become our warm up for writing.   I'm absolutely thrilled with what they've done so far!  They have come up with fantastic things to be grateful for, and they're giving super reasons!  We decided that Friday will be our sharing day for Gratitude Journals, and had our first sharing session yesterday.  I think maybe the best part was that several students shared an entry that they were grateful for books, and gave some awesome reasons why they're grateful for books! 

Something Good from Home:  This one is bittersweet.  My beautiful daughter has been home for a month from college and goes back tomorrow.  My gentleman friend's older two are now away at school, and his son goes back tomorrow.  That means for the first time, we'll BOTH be empty nesters, and might actually have some time to spend with each other!  I'll miss my daughter, but it will be nice to have "me" time, as well as "us" time.
