Habits of Mind

My lovely oldest daughters both received awards yesterday.

Their school honors kids who achieve extraordinary results with their BRAINS.

It's called Habits of Mind and it encourages and rewards developing and using good habits in school, both academically and socially.

I'm a proud mama. Our kids are the best of us combined, and I'm so grateful for all that they do!

I take credit for providing them with a nurturing environment in which to grow. But who they are, I give credit to Heavenly Father. He created them, they came to this earth with their personalities in place, and they are wonderful.

What a gift it is to be entrusted with these precious spirits. Both on good days, and not so good days.

But speaking of good days, Nora is potty training!! And doing extremely well. I'm very happy.

Thanks for all your kind words, too. The sun came out, and the two combined were much appreciated.

Now I'm off to help facilitate tinkling in the toilet, peeing in the potty, and making the pee come out! It's an exciting day around here!
