This week we saw a bit of rain and some colder weather come our way. In what could be a gloomy, grey experience I found myself filled with joy. The rain and clouds are what give us our striking plant life and clean, blue skies. The colder wetter weather could be discouraging but I love this rain and grey sky scenario. It is part of what makes everything so beautiful here. It creates the captivating landscape we all enjoy and the clean air I longed for as a little girl in Southern California.
It is hard to believe but we are about to finish our second week of school. This was a week full of specialists, routines, and new friendships. We welcomed a visiting priest, had our first curriculum night, and experienced some impressive thunder and lightning. It has been a wonderful start to the school year in many ways.
