Thankful that Magdalena slept past sunrise that morning! It started out much better than the past few! And she's been sleeping past sunrise since. *knocking on wood now*.
Day 12: How very nice the day was! Such a gift! I mean, the day was a perfect summer's day...in November! And we made the best of it by having two play-dates.
Day 13: Magdalena's teachers! They're amazing! She is in a preschool two days a week and it is so cool! Makes me wish I was four. They spend all the time they can exploring outside and the environment, and learning how to have fun with it and treat it with respect. Another two days a week she's in a free program which addresses some minimal learning delays she has. And I mean minimal, which would not have been the case if not for this program and others like it.
Day 14: I am grateful for all the new friends I have made in the past couple of years through Magdalena. The past few days have been jammed pack full of play-dates, pot-lucks, parties, and fundraisers.
I learned about a new holiday, Diwali, which began yesterday and runs through the next few days. Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, held in the period October to November. A year ago I had no idea what Diwali was, and this year I found myself celebrating it! (Word for the wise: If you've never tried homemade Naan, it's a must! As soon as my friend posts her recipe, I am linking it! YUM.)
I was planning on having pictures of Magdalena with her teachers and her classrooms for this post, but, the best laid plans, right?
That's what I've been thankful for the past couple of days. What about you?
