Celebrate with Ruth Ayres @ ruth ayres writes …. because, we need to celebrate moments in our lives every chance we get!
It’s back from vacation, back to school (or, getting ready to do so). But, I wanted to take this Celebration Saturday to mark a few of my summer celebrations…before they fade into all the “stuff” of my daily working/living life:
I am so thankful to have been able to see my parents this summer: we live an ocean apart, and even though the phone lines are always buzzing between London and New Jersey, there is nothing quite like seeing them first thing in the morning and last thing at night again.
After thirty two years, my husband Scott remains my favorite travel companion. Who else could be so much fun to be with, whether we are in search of obscure but fascinating historic sites, theater in all its forms, perfecting the at of the selfie, or a morning spent looking over ancient manuscripts? So, I celebrate Scott.
And finally, I celebrate the fact that I will soon be walking through my classroom door, ready to greet another crop of sixth graders and begin a year of learning and growing together. My room has a long way to go before I can sort the boxes and recreate our learning space, but I am ready. So, I celebrate that!
Thank you, Ruth, for giving us this lovely Saturday event – check out other celebrations here!
