Splash of Orange

Both daughter and husband were off from school yesterday so we went to Starvaggi Park to lessen up the stress we have about Dave's surgery.  The splash of Orange colors in the park gave us  hope about the family's ordeal.
I realized yesterday how time flies and how life  is short sometimes for some people.  So it is always great to enjoy every  bit of it.  
Last year, my daughter  wasn't able to use this orange skort because it was way too big for her but yesterday I realized that she is growing up fast!  Soon she would be bigger than me.  
I have tasks to write yesterday but I  set it aside and went to the park instead.  Family is what we should always prioritize.
Today, my daughter came home from school with a certificate from her teacher.  She won their spelling  exercise and she is very proud about it, WE are too! I am so proud of her progress in school, she knows how to read very well now, can add and subtract,  and she is also getting so good with spelling.  I can still remember when I was still teaching her how to write her name, read the alphabet, and do some math problem.  We did not enroll her in pre-school so my husband and were basically her reading and   writing tutors.  
I am so glad and thankful that I got to be her first teacher.  Being a stay-at-home-mom is a blessing and I am very thankful about it.  I also would like to thank all of you who include my brother-in-law in your prayers.  His surgery went well but he is still in a lot of pain and under observation in the hospital.  In behalf of the  Cottrill clan, thank you all so much!

  1. Keep9ing the prayers coming for Dave. In fact I prayed for your family on my way into work today. It gives me so much peace to pray for others in need and helps keep my mental state sane and quiet and calm. Keep us posted. Your daughter is beautiful. That orange skort is darling on her. She is a perfect little model in it! Hugs to you! Anne

  4. So much to comment on. I hope the surgery goes well without complications.

    Congratulations on your daughters spelling prowess.

    And, I agree with you. I love being home with my kids. When they were younger I was a teacher in their school and so we were always home together. It made a difference for me.

  18. Good for you having your priorities straight. The time we have for your children is really little so you have to make the most of it.

    I'm all for everybody being fulfilled and I also think that women are very capable in the workplace and shouldn't be discriminated against because they are women but I think children do better with their moms at home.
