I love exam week!

If I could go back to college and work on a masters degree in music, I would...if it meant that I got to shove myself into a practice room for 3+ hours and have music lessons with amazing professors again.  (My practice time today was shared with a busy little boy dumping toys out around my feet and a little girl accompanying me on a cymbal and a spoon.)  But as far as the actual classes and exams--NO THANK YOU!  All of that stuff always made me a nervous wreck (feel free to ask me about exam days if your stomach is strong enough to handle it)  But now, speaking from the other side of what used to feel like a dark and never-ending tunnel, I can say that I absolutely LOVE exam week...because when you have a young child in school, it means they don't start until 11:30 on testing days:)  We got to spend a very relaxing morning together, and it all started with this:
What a blessing to see my two greatest blessings loving on each other the way that they do!  Lucy is such a proud big sister, and Gabriel looks up to Lucy so much.  She can make him laugh unlike anyone else--it is such a joy to watch them interact with one another!  The bond they have and the love they have for each other fills my heart in a way that words just cannot fully express. 

"Thank you, Lord, for the privilege of being Lucy and Gabriel's Mommy!"
