Three Beautiful Things: Smile, Laugh, Friday Night

1. Smile: Last night I went out with some girlfriends for sushi. I had a great time, talking about everything from giving birth to bifocals. But the most beautiful thing was when I came home and pulled into the carport, I saw Duncan's face in the window. He was having a bedtime snack, and Randy was reading to him. When he heard me drive up, he looked out with the biggest, most beautiful smile on his face. Sheer joy on both our parts.

2. Laugh: I had so much fun teaching my World Lit/World Geography class today. We've been studying the play Oedipus Rex, and today we began reading it aloud in class, readers' theatre style. But first we had a lesson in subtext and about how meaning can changes according to the emphasis of words. We did a couple of vocal exercises, and it was just hilarious. They are such great kids.

3. Friday night: I love Friday nights, even though (or maybe because) we have nothing planned. It's a chilly, rainy night, and I have a warm house, a sweet family, and a delicious meal cooking. All we need is a good movie…

What beautiful things are in your life today? More joy going on at Good, True and Beautiful's Just for the Joy of It.

  3. Thank you for your comment on my post. My boys are my heart warmers. :)
    We like Fridays too over here and actually they are watching an old movie right now while waiting for me to get off my blog fix!
    English is my second language and I agree with you that a word can mean different thing depends on where the accent landed. Took me a while to get it. I am thankful to have the opportunity to homeschool my children. It gave me another chance to relearn the language and history.
