Discover. Play. Build.

Ruth Ayres has a link-up on weekends where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate every week.

This weekend I am writing my post early because I will be out celebrating too much to post. Last week a new person joined our family. My brother and his wife had a new baby girl. This will be my fourth niece and I get to meet her this weekend. I'm looking forward to meeting her and being with my mother, brother and other family members.

I am celebrating spring today too. We've had a little snow again this week, but today the sun is shining and the temps are back above 50. Today at our school we had a school wide celebration outside with music and dancing on the playground. It was a wonderful day for it.

Tennis is underway and I'm about to run out to watch another match. Our exchange student has been enjoying his time on the team. We only have about six more weeks with him before he heads back to South Korea. I enjoy having students come stay because we get to see our own lives through another perspective. I think we learn and grow every time someone comes to stay.

I was able to go to craft night yesterday. I wasn't able to work on the bracelet I had been making because the supplies weren't there, so I started a medallion (sort of like this). It's more complicated than the bracelet for sure and is one of the reasons I have an optometrist appointment next week. Those tiny beads and stitching are tricky when I'm looking over the top of my glasses and then back through them again. Bifocals may be in my near future.

Once again, I'm thankful that I work with fun people. Several of us spent time laughing together at lunch today.

I'm off to watch some tennis. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Congratulations and welcome to your new niece, Crystal. How wonderful that is. Hope you have a lovely family time! I see that medallion and understand about the 'smallness', such intricate work. Have a great week ahead!

  2. So many wonderful things in your post. I'm glad you work with fun people! I've been enjoying new baby pics this week. Enjoy that family time together. Hope you get snuggle time with your new niece and memories to store until your next visit.

  3. Congratulations on a new baby in the family! How very wonderful! New babies bring everything into perspective. Enjoy your family time.

  4. Spring and baby - life is beautiful. Exchange student, beads and tennis make a merry mixture - no way can you get bored.
