Im so happy its Friday. Ever since school started, and having a first grader now, I’ve been extra grateful for a weekend break. For the kids sake and for mine. Is anyone else having a rough time with their little ones adjusting to a full day of school? Its breaking my heart. The natural me wants to pull him out, wrap him up in my arms and whisk him back home early everyday. But, against my will, I’m letting him stick it out. He comes home pretty overwhelmed. He’s in a Spanish Immersion program, and IT IS INTENSE. My sweet little boy is handling it better than I am. Really. Has anyone enrolled their first graders in an immersion program? I would LOVE to hear your tips and ways you’ve been able to support them in it sans tears.
Life right now is just, a little overwhelming in general. Im preparing for a move, overcoming a hard breakup. (Anyone single out there? Do you feel like with each break up it hurts deeper an deeper?) I feel like I get closer and closer to finding the man to join Dash, Sunny and I’s world, and each time it fails, my heart sinks deeper and deeper. This one had me feeling like I had really done it. Like heartaches were over. It kills me that im back at square one.
The kids and I just finished our evening prayers. We prayed longer than usual. We thanked our Father in Heaven for SO MANY THINGS. We have so many blessings. SO, so many. Sometimes I feel like I get on top of things in my life, and then I’m knocked down in order to recognize all the blessings I do have. I am not yet, but will soon be, grateful for another trial to put things into perspective for me again.
I haven’t been doing much shopping, reading, cooking or anything but survival mode. So have nothing new to share. But, here are some shots that have been on snapchat lately, its really the only social media I’m any good at updating.
Follow along @nicolecalleen, and Happy Fryday!
