I am thankful I continue to make it through long days.
Here is what I mean ... during the school year I teach piano three days out of the week. This means I say goodbye to E-man from about 2:30 or 3 until anywhere from 7-9 at night. So, during the school year I get just enough of a break for him that most days fly by and I never feel like 'shew - that was a LONG day with my child'. (Don't get me wrong, I love being home with him but I also really look forward to doing something else and having a break for a few hours.)
During the summer, I teach one maybe two days and for not as much time. This week I only taught one day for about 3 hours so I have seen a LOT of E-man and he has seen a LOT of me. :) On top of that, Ross is speaking at Bethel's Basketball Camp which puts him home around 7:15/7:30 Mon-Thursday this week and next week and that REALLY extends my patience factor. :) So I'm thankful we survived each other today and I'm thankful Ross is home!!
(REALLY though ... isn't he great!? This is a cowboy shirt Beans bought for him and he wanted to try it on - he was already wearing his penguin boots so yes - this is quite the outfit :))
