March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

What a Wonderful Class

Today we received what I thought was a really kind e-mail from Stephen's teacher. 
It said that she had 15 new friends to be thankful for this year.   
She went on to list each child in her class followed by a character trait that she is thankful for in each of their individual personalities.
It brought tears to my eyes, because she does have a really great class and a lot to be thankful for.

I have the opportunity to volunteer in Stephen's class a couple of times a month, so I get to see firsthand how awesome they are.
They are full of personality and ready to learn.
They have fun together and they really seem to get along well.
Without giving names here is the list she sent:

* easy going-ness * creativeness * enthusiasm * excitement * 
* smile * sweetness * kindness * artistic-ness * independent-ness * 
* cheerfulness * dependability * laughter * politeness * gentleness * humor *
Can you guess which one was Stephen?

  1. I could list several of those that sound like Stephen but I guess gentleness.
