It's a Wonderful Life

I am so blessed. It's been a wonderful week for me. Maybe it's something about springtime. Maybe it's something about sunshine. I just love this time of year and even though I am slightly sunburned from floating in the pool yesterday, it's great to see some color in my face. My husband and kids totally spoiled me yesterday, with special meals, an ice cream cake, and a new pool floatie that looks like a queen's throne!

I also had three wonderful sweepstakes wins last week. I won a $50 Ticketmaster Gift Card that I can use on anything at any venue, with no expiration date. The second best prize I won last week is 200 Slim Jim Sticks and my boys are going to love me for that one. The very best prize of all is the trip for two that I won to Las Vegas, Nevada! I am so excited. We haven't chosen dates yet, but trip wins are the only way we take vacations anymore because I put us on such a strict budget. My husband had a rough week last week at work, so he was totally stoked when I called to ask if he'd like to go to Vegas with me. I will love blogging that trip for you!!

In addition, in the past week, I've been in contact with several families whose children are near-ready to enter my daycare program soon. I am so excited because it changes the whole dynamics of the classroom and always gives us a whole new direction. I'll also have to say goodbye in the fall to one of my daycare boys, who has reached kindergarten age. He's been here four years and it's been such a joy to watch him grow. His family is awesome too and since he's the youngest child, I'll be saying goodbye to the family as well, which isn't easy either. But that's my job, to help develop these kids and then send them off into the world of "big kid school."

I hope you have a wonderful week, filled with blessings!
