It's the little things

 It's really nice to feel appreciated occasionally. One of my former basketball players Mom's had to come by Lakeridge and she had her drop off some cake balls for me. How nice is that???? I didn't need cake balls, but they were delicious, and much appreciated. It was just really generous.
Oh and I do happen to love cake balls.

I have some students that say thank you everyday after class. It is such a little thing but it really is nice to hear. Even if they don't love every single thing we do and their parents probably tell them to. It is still nice.

I am not a fan of snow sticking around, but I do think it is beautiful. This morning watching the GIANT flakes come down was mesmerizing. It was so calm and beautiful.
Basketball started. The team is selected. One week of practice down. I have a few players that say thank you every day after practice. Even when we run a lot, and I have to correct them a lot.

I have been watching Heartland on Netflix. Katie got me hooked. It is cheesy, but I love it. It is clean. Family oriented. It is nice to have a show that I enjoy watching that is appropriate.

Playing soccer and basketball. This week was CRAZY! I was at the school way too much. There was the usual things like school and basketball but on top of that there were UAPHERD board meetings and parent teacher conferences. I really didn't have time to do much else. By the time I got home I was exhausted. It was nice to get out and compete today. Even if I didn't play well in soccer I still felt so much better for having run around.

Spotify. I love it. It has been great to use with my students.

Chatting with friends. I got to chat with Katie Call this week. It was so great to catch up. Afterwards I kicked myself for waiting for an event like a birthday to call a friend.

It's the little things that matter most!
