Summer vacation begins today ... this morning ... I actually got to sleep in until 7:45. Dh arrives next week with his mom ... and later this month Nathan begins a life skills day camp four days a week. My little fellow was given the following awards at school yesterday ;)

  1. ATTENDANCE COLLECTOR (for picking up the daily attendance ... at each classroom)
  2. ICEPACK AWARD (for making ice packs for the office :)
  3. LUNCH COUNT COLLECTOR (for picking up lunch cards ... at each classroom)
  4. DELIVERY AWARD (for deliveries made to the classrooms)
  5. POPCORN AWARD (for helping with ... not eating ... the school's popcorn bags)
  6. FLUORIDE AWARD (for counting fluoride on a weekly basis ... to be distributed to the classrooms)
His job possibilities are ever expanding!

Dear Mrs, Mac,
The Canadian children have to go to school until the end of June.
Do your kids have to start back to school in August?

You know what Mrs. Mac?
I think these school awards that the Gift got are really impressive!
I really do!
It is just going to be the same at the judgemnt seat of Christ when we will be rewarded for the little things in life that we have tried to do for the Lord, the little things that we have forgotten that we have done!!.
The little things that are worthy of an award!
.Love Terry

Boy, that's a lot of awards...way to go Nathan! I would say the popcorn award would be a challenge for me...eating popcorn is one of lifes great little pleasures!
So is DH retiring now? It sounds like a wonderful time ahead for all of you.
Pop some corn, sit on the porch and enjoy one another!

Three Cheers for Nathan. (I was going to say little Nathan, but he sounds like a pretrty big boy to win all those awards) I'm so happy for him and you. You must have been overjoyed to see him receive the rewards.
I'm glad your dh is finally coming, you've been alone and brave long enough. God Bless!!
Love from Gramma_s

Dear Mrs. Mac...
You didn't decide to go on that road trip did you?
Sure do miss you!
Hope you are not working too hard!...Love Terry

Mrs. Mac said...

Yes ... and No ... Yes to working hard ... and No to going on a road trip. I've been in the "garden" planting shrubs, perennials, an ornamental Japanese weeping maple tree ... mowing ... and weed wacking.

Be back soon. DH and mom are coming for a visit ... and I have some work to get caught up on. Love ... Mrs. Mac
