A List Maker's Life: Good Things Friday

Good Things Friday

Today is a good day & a perfect time to reflect on all that's good right now!
~The endless month, that is March, is over. We spent many March hours cuddled on the couch reading books.  It paid off when Gavin was awarded for being the top reader in his class during reading month.
~Welcome April! Spring Break is here, bringing with it a welcome break in routines and chasing. Just in time for break, our spring weather arrived this week. We are enjoying beautiful, breezy 80 degree temps.  I'd take an entire summer of days just like the last three.  With the lovely weather we've been enjoying bike rides, lunch picnics in the backyard, feeding the birds, and having the windows open in the house.
~With only a small bribe from dad the kids did a fabulous job cleaning their rooms today...uh, for the first time in like 2 months... 
~There is this wonderful little coffee shop right around the corner from our house that has the most amazing peach smoothies on their menu.  We've only gone a few times;)
~For yesterday's Thursday school with the 3 and 4 year olds our theme was The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  It is, of course, an Eric Carle favorite.  The library had a special pop up edition of the book that we used.  It made it even more fun!
~My favorite Cindy Morgan Easter CD is playing on my iTunes.
~If you haven't checked out ABC & 123 in awhile there are some good things going on there as well.  We have 2 fabulous new feature writers and we've earned a spot on the list of the 50 Best Blogs for Early Childhood Educators.
~Our traditional Easter projects - egg carton sugar cookies and bunny carrots - are ready to go.
~Our egg decorating experience this morning was everything I hoped it would be: Smiles, Giggles, Stained Fingers, Splotchy Colored Eggs, and not a single spill.
And talk about good...
